Gateway 1

The most important Gateway 1 is available for pilots who already have a PPL(A) license, some flight experience and the ATPL(A) exams passed and who wish to continue their commercial training under the Ryanair umbrella. They receive intensive CPL, IR, ME and UPRT training according to Ryanair standard operating procedures and the course ends with an Airline Pilot Standard Multi-Crew Cooperation programme completed in a fixed base B737 simulator. The Gateway One course takes only about 4 months.

Gateway 2

If you already possess a CPL(A) licence together with IR/ME and ME ratings (and have the UPRT course completed), you can join the Ryanair Mentored Programme at Gateway 2. The training will then consist mainly of an APS MCC course.
