Ryanair today (4 Jan) announced its first 19 new pilots of 2018 have joined the airline, as Ryanair Chief Pilot, Ray Conway, presented the 12 cadets and 7 Captains with their ‘Wings’ at a ceremony at Ryanair’s Dublin Offices.
Ryanair’s Chief Pilot, Ray Conway said:
“In 2017, we hired over 1,100 new pilots, and I am pleased to welcome these 19 new pilots to Ryanair today, our first new recruits of 2018. I look forward to welcoming many more as we grow our route network, fleet and passenger numbers over the coming months and years.
Ryanair continues to hire and train the best pilots on a weekly basis, as we expand our fleet and our world class team of pilots. The ladies and gentlemen that fly for Ryanair are the best in the business and it’s no surprise that we continue to attract hundreds of pilot applicants from other airlines, who join Ryanair for our industry leading pay, excellent working conditions, unrivalled career progression and brand new aircraft.”
