I before E

I just updated my application for Ferret Air, over the web. That's good, but the nice positive feeling fizzled abruptly as I spotted a typo, just after I hit the submit button. You can imagine the HR person at Ferret, can't you?

"What's this? A transposed i and e? Doesn't she know a spelling error like that can bring down an airplane?"

My "expereince" allows me to distinguish the flap handle from the gear handle, but if I could swap an i and e on the job application, what will the company think I will do on the runway?
