One of the Leading European Airlines Shares Assessment Pass-Rate for its Ab-initio and APS MCC Pathways

29th Aug 2022

Ireland headquartered low cost carrier Ryanair has shared assessment pass rates for its Ryanair Mentored ab-initio course and Mentored APS MCC pathways.

According to the Ryanair’s Pilot Recruitment Manager Angelo Currao, prior to mentored students committing to a large investment they are assessed by the airline’s partner ATOs to firstly ensure that they have the capability to successfully complete pilot training and that they are suitable to become a future Ryanair pilot.

Ryanair’s overall pass rate for all its mentored programmes is 98% which includes its mentored APS MCC students. The question now is, what happens to the 2% students who fail the assessment?

“In the off-chance that the Mentored Student fails at the final Ryanair assessment, comprehensive feedback is provided to the partner ATO’s Head of Training and, subject to approval, additional training and support may be provided to the student prior to completing a 2nd assessment with Ryanair, as soon as possible. This unique feature of the programme should not be underestimated when you are investing in your future, said Angelo Currao.

  • Atlantic Flight Training Academy
  • Aviomar Flight Academy
  • Bartolini Air

  • VA Airline Training

What is the APS-MCC?

As shared by Ryanair – “The APS-MCC is an efficient and effective course that is the tailor made link between the initial pilot training and the challenging operation in a commercial cockpit.

The Airline Pilot Standard MCC in accordance with EASA AMC2 FCL.735.A will develop all the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to help you fit easily into an airline career. Our statistics show that over 50% of newly qualified pilots who hold a CPL, frozen ATPL theoretical exams, ME/IR and a standard MCC fail at the initial assessment. The APS MCC will give you every chance of passing an assessment!

Cadets who enter the mentored APS MCC with one of our partner ATOs will get an unbelievable opportunity to train with Ryanair approved procedures, SOPs and instructors.”
