Are they honest hardworking people? Maybe you could learn something from them.

Let's recap shall we?

You're posting on a pilot jobs board asking about how to best to lie about your training and credential. Your posts indicate that you lack integrity and honesty and are trying to cover-up a lack of preparation and ability. Anyone can have a bad day on a check ride, but five failures. That's a solid trend my friend.

Five failures isn't the end of the world, but trying to conceive a feeble plan to lie about it is as weak as it comes. In a future pilot interview or job application when you're asked "have you ever failed a check ride?" what would you say?

I am contemplating surrendering all of my certificates and starting over and just having the peace of mind. Everyone is telling me not to worry about it but personally its hard to forget about them . Just thinking back to them completely ruins my outlook on everything and it makes me feel like I am a criminal no matter how many times I take full responsibility for them.
Makes you wish now that you prepared harder for your checkrides that you failed. How many have you failed and which ones? What were the real reasons for your failures? If we know that, we can help guide you.

He might have an ego, but I bet he doesn't have as many checkride failures as you do!

Glider , commercial single for a power off 180 and Cfi twice at the Fsdo both the examiners stated I was just presenting information and not teaching it and one of the inspectors was playing with an I pad and they said it was a result of not including him in "teaching" don't get me wrong I learned from each mistake and try to stay. Positive from it but going in I knew I couldn't bust the Cfi I was more then prepared took at least 3 mock rides with 3 instructors and they bust me 7 hours into the oral in the first time and at the end of the flight portion the second time . It is my fault tho a friend of mind failed 4 times at the same Fsdo and knowing that I should have went somewhere else but I felt confident and it backfired . Meanwhile after that I got my double II and multi add on without an issue

It seems to me that your time would better be spent getting on at an air carrier and establishing a track record of passing checkrides there, while adding to your overall experience and marketability. Think about your reputation in the industry. Think about how you will get a professional recommendation from a fellow airman when they find out what you did to cover your past. Trust me something this ludicrous will get around. I think if you put your effort into self improvement instead of deception you would be better off in all regards.

Why do you think starting over will wipe the slate clean of your previous failures?

So you would start over completely from zero hours? If not, what do you think when you show up for your checkrides with 1500 hours in your logbook and no explanation?

How about the 8710 form?

Block M. Do You Hold or Have You Ever Held An FAA Pilot Certificate?

IV. HAVE YOU FAILED A PRACTICAL TEST FOR THIS CERTIFICATE OR RATING?

I'd have to agree with AWAX, this might not be the career for you. Not because of your failures or flying, but for your cognitive thinking.

You didn't flunk your checkrides because you couldn't perform a 180 descent. It's attitude, which is childish and obvious.

You certainly didn't come here for counsel, as you've spent your time either insulting those who responded to you, or attempting to teach us all what you clearly don't know.

Posting the same question in multiple forums on the same web board is spamming.

Your spelling is atrocious. Your language is that of a teenager. Your attitude is juvenile, and let's face it, thus far your failures average one every 300 hours. You're in the wrong business.

You're also going on the ignore list.
