For VFR-only that's true only for flight in Class A/B/C, or under Mode C Veil. Unless that's changed?

Plus flight above 10,000 feet MSL, over the 48 contiguous states or the District of Columbia, excluding that airspace below 2,500 feet AGL.

I think there’s some mixing of the rules here. You’re quoting where a mode C transponder is required. But if you have a transponder, any transponder, it has to be turned off/placarded if not inspected biennially

Kinda, but more just not telling the whole story. In the post of mine you quoted, I was simply adding an operating condition Aluminum left off his 91.215 airspace list above. What you’re bringing up that and he left off is 91.215 states that if you turn a transponder on in any controlled airspace it has to have a current 91.413 check.

It is possible to fly in class G only with a transponder on that hasn’t had a current 91.413 check as stipulated in 91.215, but what would be the point?
