When I hired on at Kalitta under the previous contract, it was "no failures in the past five years".
With a strong letter of rec and clean record for the past five years, might not even be an issue here, once you have the appropriate 121 time.
Not sure if this changed with the new contract. Still pilots hiring pilots who understand this sort of thing far better than an HR type.

I have a friend who recently busted an internal proficiency check at the school he works for. Sounds like it was just a proficiency check that all the instructors there have to do. Heís nervous it will be a sticking point later in his career. I told him itís probably not a big deal, but I donít actually know...Iím assuming check ride failures for certificates and ratings hold significantly more weight than stage checks, right? At least at my school, if you were going to fail a ride, you wanted to get it over with on a stage check.

I donít think an interval PC made up by a flight school will have any impact on him. However, I would not recommend trying to hide it either.

Isn't that like being asked about your middle school transcripts?

Itís tricky I flew with a guy who was a new hire at Spirit and got let go because of a discrepancy with a flight school he taught at. I wouldnít hide it. The way those questions are worded on applications is have you ever failed. Wonít be a problem at a regional. Not sure a legacy.

Itís been a while so bear with me.
Under Part 141 a yearly standardization flight is required for flight instructors. The Chief FI or Asst Chief can conduct these flights.
Itís not a pass or fail ďrideĒ in the eye of the FAA.
So a made up internal ďpass or failĒ ride has no footing in any of the regs.

RTFQ

Have you ever failed a checkride ? ( Means for certificate or rating issue)
Have you ever failed an evaluation flight? ( Could be anything civilian or military)

Not the end of the world. You can still end up at the legacies and majors with multiple failures.
