Flight Instruction - Regular and Mountain

Flight Review. Instructor requirements?
Author Last Post
Try Rick Geiger in Cut Bank. Good guy!!!!
Can't give you a definitive on your main question - but consider the time you will invest in the review and the significant added value of riding with a tail wheel - and better yet Skywagon - CFI. I never fail to learn something valuable when riding with another wagon driver.

You may have to look harder, but it is worth it. My last BFR i tracked down a willing long-time wagon driver with thousands of hours in the airframe both private and commercial, almost all Alaska time. The only one screaming during the process was me, and it improved my capabilities beyond their current state at the time. Good luck and have fun!
Flight review coming up and I located an instructor but she says that she can't fly with me (in my 185 Skywagon) because she does not have a tail wheel endorsement! Same thing for an IPC which I also need.

Are there any instructors out there on the forum who might have the real story on any regs that pertain to this. I looked and found that you need an "authorized instructor" for the Flight Review. Nothing about an instructor needing a tail wheel endorsement, just category and class and a type rating if the aircraft needed one.

(b) Aircraft Ratings. A flight instructor may not conduct flight training in any aircraft for which the flight instructor does not hold:

(1) A pilot certificate and flight instructor certificate with the applicable category and class rating; and

(2) If appropriate, a type rating.

Yes, an instructor would need a tail wheel endorsement if she were the PIC, but on a Flight Review, it's my understanding that the one needing the review is PIC.

I'm also calling our FSDO to see what they say.

Thanks in advance for any help on this!
