    Failed private pilot checkride 3 times + low scores

    I reported the CFI, apparently she was trying to teach in 2 schools at once so there was a lot of drama. As for my career, I'm putting applications on hold until I get this figured out, and re-test. The dream is still there but I need to put in way more time if I want it to happen. I appreciate all of your advice and support. What are you talking about? I downvoted him because he badgered me for my school, CFI, and DPE then ghosted me and is ignoring me. Gave him a lot of personal info and now he's just being silent with me. Punk move. Also I was playing around with you because that video was hilarious, if you didn't get that joke. Get a grip bro, you aren't a special FBI agent who just discovered the smoking gun!

    Well dude, just because it didn't happen to you didn't mean it didn't happen. The ECAC in Nashua has a horrendous reputation. The one in Bedford has an excellent reputation. I would never recommend anyone to go to the one in Nashua, but I could recommend the one in Bedford. And my CFI is very dramatic and I'm now seeing she is a very bad one. I'll just PM you the details, don't want too much to be public.

    Would you mind sharing your scores so we can compare packages? Would you mind sharing your scores so we can compare packages?

    Welp, time to get the waiver to retake the AFOQT a third time. I've already scheduled to retake the TBAS here soon. Thanks man I appreciate it. I think my old school is a scam artists dream. I've scheduled a mock check ride with my new school and we will see how that goes. I really hope to report back with good news and maybe even secure that Wisconsin interview slot next year :)

    Did you get feedback from them? Did you get any feedback?

    You're right. Looks like barely any of my hours transfer to the part 141 school I was talking to for legal reasons. Just a few more flights though I know I can do this and push through. East Coast Aero Club in Nashua New Hampshire. Awful club I can't recommend it to anyone. I've also talked to a lot of other people and they have the same sentiment about the club. No one likes it. No, I was this CFI's first student, so I'm starting to suspect she is just trying to milk me for hours so she can move onto the airlines. I had like 25 hours before my first solo and I flew like 3 times a week. My instructor would just not sign me off for solo cross country and kept doing dual cross country and night cross countries with me saying she doesn't trust me in a plane by myself. I'm confident speaking to the new school that they can get me my PPL in about 3 months with all the retraining. Can't believe I gave this school money though!

    Yep just failed my check ride for the 4th time with the same DPE. Didn't even set foot in the plane. We pre-flighted together and he asked me what the shimmy damper was which I didn't know at the time and failed me right then and there. CFI wants to re-do a significant amount of training with me, and wants to start doing night cross countries with me again. WTF? I showed her the ACS about how stalls need to be taken to the full extent and she said that's not true and it's downright dangerous to do that, that many students and instructors have been killed because of bringing them to the full extent of the stall. I told them that I don't feel like I've been treated fairly here and they kicked me out right then and there and told me that because of my performance that I'm not allowed in the school ever again, with any instructor! I feel absolutely robbed at this point as I have over 115 hours of flight time and I don't even have my PPL yet. And I agree 100% part 61 is garbage, I'm switching over to the part 141 school right next to them and never looking back. Thought part 61 would help by making my training more flexible but it has done nothing but give me heartache after heartache. I'll never recommend this school to anyone. Not even Chinese students.

    I'm not adding in any costs, that's the flat cost. Shit your tests cost as much as my re-tests. I've taken a mock check ride with a different CFI but we never did stalls during it so I passed everything else. And the schools Chief Pilot just got fired for being creepy with students so that's not a possibility. I really don't think I'm rushing but I guess I have not dedicated a full lesson to just get stalls down fully, and not only to the stall horn. I really want to prove to the boards that I can do this, hopefully they can see that it's just stalls and not my overall flying skill.

    I've been with the same CFI, though I will say she is scared of stalls and tells me to take the stall only to the stall horn and not a complete stall. I've kept failing on stalls in the air, and sadly it has been with the same DPE. He is giving me a discount on the retests (original test was $900 and each retest has been $500). I feel like I've spent too much money to go to another DPE and retest and retake the Oral which I barely passed apparently. I'll probably give it one more shot and if this doesn't work then I'll have to re-evaluate. Hopefully before I turn in my Oklahoma app too!
  10. Title says it all. I just failed the FAA private pilot check ride for the third time. My scores aren't the best either: P79 N45 AA55 V76 Q28 PCSM: 68. At this point I can't be picky about which air frame I want to fly, so I'm shooting apps everywhere. I know theres a thread about a guy who failed his check ride once but how bleak is my case? Will I be shown the door immediately if I even get an interview? At a complete lost right now, especially after receiving the rejection from Wisconsin. Really down on myself now and not sure what to do.

    I have 0 views on my youtube video. My app didn't even make it past the initial screening to get my video watched haha. Why am I even trying for fighter units, life would be so much simpler if I just applied to heavy units 🤪
