More qualified? Flying CONUS missions anywhere in the US is the easiest thing we do. Guys like me may not have as many hours or as much turbine PIC, but Ive flown 4 different aircraft, on 5 continents and have hundreds of combat sorties. Ive heard it around here many times before, the airlines like military because we are a known quantity and have proven to be trainable.

"Excessive" is a loose term on purpose. Whats important is:

1. Accepting the failure and not making excuses (Ex: the DPE was out to get me, my CFI never taught me that. etc...)
2. What did you learn from the failure?
3. What did you do to better yourself after the failure./ What kind of flying have you done since the failure

And of course what check rides the failure happened on.

For XJT its a moving target, they're big on what you learned versus a hard 3 strikes your out.
