Ryanair ATO provides courses in flying Boeing 737 and Airbus 320 passenger planes to newly recruited pilots. On successful completion of these courses, participants achieve either an A320 or a B737 300-900 Type Rating, which allows them to operate those aircraft with passengers on board.
Courses comprise Ground School, which covers the underpinning theoretical learning, and practical simulator training. Ground School includes face-to-face, virtual and online delivery. The majority of Ground School is being taught online due to national restrictions, with the remainder delivered either virtually or face to face in classrooms at the centre. All practical sessions are delivered face to face using flight simulators. The content of the courses is determined by EASA and approved by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA). Course certification is awarded by the IAA.
