Commercial BFR and type of aircraft flown

Asked by: 1755 views Commercial Pilot

I have a commercial certificate (SE) and I'm going for a BFR. It's been many years since I've flown so I'll need a few hours practice. Due to the age and condition of many of the SE aircraft available to me, I'm considering conducting these dual hours in an LSA aircraft, specifically a Remos G3. My question is, can my Commercial priveleges be endorsed based on training in this type of aircraft?

    Well the only relevant paragraph on the FAR is:
    (c) Except as provided in paragraphs (d), (e), and (g) of this section, no person may act as pilot in command of an aircraft unless, since the beginning of the 24th calendar month before the month in which that pilot acts as pilot in command, that person has–(1) Accomplished a flight review given in an aircraft for which that pilot is rated by an authorized instructor;
    View reference:
    So you are rated for ASE, and this ia an ASE so you are good to go.

    The only caveat is that the instructor conducting the flight review in the Sport Airplane cannot be a Sport Pilot Instructor.
