Error in a paperwork help?

Asked by: 1392 views General Aviation

When I went to get  my Check ride I filled out the 8710-1 , I thought I put all the flying hours corrected.So, I signed the form in front DPE , so I started the check ride; Sadly I fail. Well, I'm studying with my instructor to retake the check ride, I checked my logbook I again and I found an error in my X/C flying hours , I counted 1.6 flying hours as a X/C, but those (1.6 flying hours) are not X/c are  touch and goes SOLO FLIGHT. Then, I put in the 8710-1 in the X/C  colums that says solo X/C  I put my all X/C flying instead of my solo X/C flight. My doubt is if I can fix it in the second 8710-1 that I have to fill out again to re take the test.

    Regardless, fill the new 8710-1 out accurately. If you needed the hours to meet your solo cross country requirement, then of course you will need to accomplish this before your next check ride. Mistakes happen, that is why white-out was invented. Just don’t knowingly lie.

    Your situation is similar to one that was asked a few weeks ago. The answer is pretty much the same.
