Red face Multi Engine Instrument Checkride

Today at 0800...I'll let you all know how it goes. Wasn't nervous until this morning.

Sorry to hear that. Learn from your mistakes and you'll be a better pilot as a result.

Jenn,

Checkrides are often taken as a checking event, but they should be looked at as another learning event. It's hard to look at it that way after you fail one-and I've failed my share-but any righteous pilot will tell you that.

Hopefully by now you've got a few adult beverages in you. Think it over all night, take a break tomorrow and then come back to do it again with what you've learned.

Jenn....


Have you ever heard this statement:


"There are NO Failures, only Outcomes"

By Tony Robbins, believe it or not.

To be honest, when it came to teaching, I'd rather see people mess up so they see what happens. Someone who does things right all the time never "experiences" the bad things. Keep your head up and good luck!!!

It looks like I have stumbled on the right threat of conversation. I have been searching for advice on this subject and hope to have it squared away here. I am about to put my John Hancock on a sizeable loan to get into a flight school, the unfortunate issue is that I just failed by Private checkride. What I am trying to identify is .......Will a failed checkride be a show stopper to get to airline interiews. I am mid 30s so I make no pretences who my competition is at these interviews, but I do want to make an informed decision based on my checkride outcome before signing myself into debt. Any thoughts on the subject?
