IACRA form question for PPL checkride

Asked by: 2951 views Private Pilot, Student Pilot

Folks, I am planning to use a 172N instead of the 172S for the checkride due to maintenance issues with the 172SP that I had planned to use. On the IACRA online form, it asks for make, model and type of aircraft to be used on the PPL test. Do I need to list the 172N model if I have listed the 172S on the IACRA form if I plan to fly the 172N on the checkride? If I only put 172S on the IACRA submitted form, is it legal to fly a 172N model instead of the 172S?

    Someone will need to correct me since I haven’t used IACRA in a while but, as I recall, in the case of the 172, unless all of your time is in the exact same lettered model, you can use the last “CE-172” in the list, “CE-172-172.”

    There’s no such model; there are so many 172 sub types (even without the retractable Cutlas) and it’s typical to move from one to the other (especially among N, R and S models), so it’s a generic designation for the the group and includes all of your 172 time.
