14 Dec 2017

Ryanair today (7 Dec) announced that another 22 new pilots have joined the airline, as Ryanair Chief Pilot, Ray Conway, presented the new recruits with their ‘Wings’ at a ceremony at Ryanair’s Dublin Offices. This brings the total number of new pilots to 1,138 since 1st Jan this year.

Ryanair’s Chief Pilot, Ray Conway said:

“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.

I am pleased to welcome 21 new pilots to Ryanair today, bringing to 528 the number joining in the past four months alone, with 1,138 hired this year. I look forward to welcoming many more as we grow our route network, fleet and passenger numbers over the coming months and years.”
