8710-1 Form I did a mistake in the table of the flying hours?

Asked by: 2852 views Private Pilot

W I wrote in my logbook two flying times in a cross country space, but fine I fix it in my logbook, but not in my IACRA 8710-1, when I got to take the check ride I thought everything was fine I signed and submited. Saddl,y I failed the test and I I'm  getting ready now and I saw that problem that I count two flying time in cross country space, that they are not cross country, they are solo flights. Now What  can do to fix that once sent? or I can change that in the second time when I go to take the test again? I dont want ptoblem with the FAA and nothin like that? the erroneus hours is 1.6 flght time that i count incorrectly

    First, I’m not sure what you mean by “they are not cross country, they are solo flights.” The two are not exclusive. If you flew a solo cross country, you would record that time in both columns.

    In terms of your question, I can’t advise you on what to do in your specific situation but, as a general proposition, errors on an 8710-1 that accidentally include flight time that did not take place should be corrected. Methods for correcting an 8710-1 (inside or outside of IACRA) are discussed here: https://iacra.faa.gov/iacra/faq.aspx Look for the question, “How do I correct an application through IACRA?”

    The one thing you really can’t do is include the incorrect over-time on the new application. That would be intentional and a violation of an FAR that is treated very seriously by the FAA – 61.59(a).
