Roger, I presume what Paul H. meant is that the endorsing flight instructor, when flying with the pilot, was essentially giving him a checkride for the category and class. As I understand it, for additional category/class privileges when operating as a Sport Pilot, this can be administered by any CFI, and does not therefore require a DPE. Paul, did I get that right??
