Wrong Spelling in my student pilot certificate

Asked by: 2565 views , , , ,
FAA Regulations, Student Pilot

I am currently enrolled in a flying school in US and start flying about two weeks ago. My instructor told me that I can do solo by next week. I'm currently answering the school pre-solo questions that my instructor gave me. After answering everything ,I check all the requirements and to my surprise, my middle name is not written correctly.

My middle name is "Santiago" but the doctor type "Santaigo".

    If it were any certificate other than a student pilot certificate, you could go to your FSDO and have it reissued with the correct name.

    Student pilot certificates are not reissued.
    Your best bet is to contact Airman Certification in OKC: (866) 878-2498

    The AME’s assistant spelled mine wrong too way back when, however I did catch it immediately, and they just re-typed the corrected name on the certificate. I would call or go back to your AME and tell them. Unless something has changed, they should be able to re-do it.

    Just to have some follow up to my questions,

    If I go to FAA would they take away the number of DUAL hours that I build in the last two weeks?

    Thanks Kris and Jim for the reply. I appreciate it.
