    not that it often happens but somebody help me trough here

    a ripperdactyl rider is a monstrous cavalry
    one of the rules for this says :

    A rank of monstrous cavalry needs only three models to count for rank bonus, steadfast and so on, and only need a six model frontage to count as a horde

    they are also flying which says :

    In addition, because of their loose fighting style, flying units consisting of more than one model have the Skirmishers special rule

    and skirmishers in turn says;

    Skirmishers simply lack the necessary mass to push forward onto the enemy and are easily overwhelmed by troops used to fighting in grinding melee. Skirmishers always count as having zero ranks, and therefore cannot claim a rank bonus, be steadfast, or disorder an enemy with a flank or rear attack

    which would seem odd please advice do they have rank bonus or not ?

    If you take a look at the BRB, under "Flying" it definitively covers that any Flying models are loosely organized and are under the rules of skirmishers.

    Sorry. :(
