Hi,

I failed a oral for my CFI with the feds about 6 years ago. Last year I did a ASA phone interview and they asked about failed checkrides, I said I had one. Is this a deal breaker? (I did'nt interview over the phone very well otherwise, just did'nt have good answers lined up). I can't imagine they'd hold this against me?

Thanks

A lot
I don't think so, unless you told them you showed up drunk and couldn't even spell CIF, or IFC, or CFI.....

i seriously doubt it. i was hired by asa and i had told them i failed a checkride during the "pre interview". so if they didnt send you an application i would think it was something else that was the reason.

I failed a checkride and still got on with ASA. Just tell them the truth and act like nothing happened. We all have a bad day every now and then.

Through personal experience, no it's not a deal breaker. I failed my initial CFI. The key is to be honest and explain what you learned from that experience and how it made you a better aviator.

Everyone has a bad day, and they understand that. Be honest and prepare yourself as much as you can.

I think as long as you haven't killed anyone lately and are breathing, they will most likely hire you....we need peeps badly.
