Can a sport pilot instructor (not a CFI) give a flight review to a private pilot as long as it is done in a light sport aircraft?

    I’m going to go with no – at least with respect to that flight review meeting the requirements of the private pilot to exercise their privileges in a non-LSA.

    61.413(f) limits a sport pilot instructor to giving a flight review to a sport pilot, and if the FAA had intended that they be able to give a flight review to a “non-sport pilot” they wouldn’t have included that limitation.

    If the private pilot wants to exercise sport pilot privileges then I’d expect a flight review from a sport pilot instructor would be sufficient.

    Doesn’t ANY flight review in any category/class/rating etc. a pilot has cover him/her for the next two years? If so, then…
    Every private pilot is also a sport pilot by definition so a flight review in an LSA would count….
