It doesn't say the training must be in a light sport aircraft.
Not explicitly. And remember, I'm not an attorney. But the rule starts with the words "If you hold a Sport Pilot certificate..." That is a conditional clause right at the beginning, which generally means that the condition applies to everything else that follows.
Now, I'm sure that's not what they intended when the rule came out, but it's what they wrote. Just another example that the Light Sport rules were not all that well thought out when written 15 years ago, and that amendments are still called for.
Your a member of NAFI correct?
Absolutely, and I'm very familiar with that document. But, except where it specifically quotes FARs, it represents just the opinion (or interpretation) of the folks at EAA and NAFI who prepared it. Remember, they're not attorneys either!
