Accidents happen, make sure to learn from them.
Just a whisper of the CFR 44709 checkride (aka. the dreaded 709 ride) is enough to make any pilot feel a chill down their spine. If you ever hear this even discussed it will surely be in hushed tones behind closed doors as if someone overheard, the person mentioning it would be subject to take a 709 ride.
There are a multitude of reasons why the FAA might require you to take a 709 check-ride.
However the most common circumstance for a 709 is an accident caused entirely by pilot error.
Sometimes accidents happen.
Contrary to popular belief, the saying "The FAA is not happy until you are not happy" is a total myth. The purpose of a 709 ride is for the FAA to determine that you have the level of competency to exercise the privileges of your pilot certificate and more importantly fixed the areas of skill in which attributed to the mishap.
