An excellent reason to report the dude’s actions to the FAA. NOT a reason to hand out type ratings or training passes to everyone as a friggin’ participation trophy.

Would you want to be operated on by a doctor who showed up for anatomy and pathology class but was never able to pass either? IF THERE ARE DEFICIENCIES IN TRAINING PERSONNEL YOU ADDRESS THE DEFICIENCIES IN TRAINING PERSONNEL. YOU DO NOT PASS THE TRAINEES REGARDLESS OF MERIT.

I don’t know, are doctors going to recurrent every year and failing KVs for trick questions unrelated to their duties?

Doctors kill thousands a year through malpractice and incompetence.

Generally one at a time though, which the public apparently has more acceptance of, for some reason. Slow boil the frog or something like that....

As much as our profession is romanticized and rightfully hallowed, you're equating pushing buttons (and not plowing a wing into the dirt) to billions of years of cellular evolution which follows no programming.
