Is the Airworthiness Certificate invalid if the aircraft model is wrong?

Asked by: 2244 views
FAA Regulations, General Aviation

I have noticed that the airworthiness certificate on a plane at my flight school has the wrong model listed.  Does that invalidate the certificate?  (The aircraft is a 172R but the certificate says 172P.  Assume that all other aspects of the certificate are correct.)

    As far as I know, yes.  It can be corrected by the local FSDO if it needs to be. Just call them and provide them the N number or serial number and they can verify if it is an error and can type out a new one for you.
