Pretty steep rental. Checkout Flying Cacti online. They operate out of Glendale airport in AZ and charge a little less than $100/hr plus instructor (about$50). Their RV-12 is about 2yrs old and has the Garmin G3X touch system.

Default RV-12 Training

I flew with Will Mclendon in Novato, CA to get my BFR and transition training. Will is a great instructor, and they have a nice RV-12 SLSA there.

Don,
I looked you up. You're a Private Pilot. Last medical in 1993. You can get a BFR in a Cessna 152, (or whatever you want and is close to you). I say again, you're a PRIVATE pilot. Don't get a new medical (unless you know you can pass). Get the BFR signed off flying a Cessna and you're now legal to operate a light sport aircraft with a valid driver license. Never at any point would you have been PIC of the Cessna. The CFI would be PIC during the BFR. That's a fully legal and easy path for you to take.

See Post #28. Don has been told this several times. And now he has been radio silent for nearly a month. Hey Don, we need an update!

Update. This post has brought up some interesting posts, as well as an FAA policy that can be read with some loopholes that one would not probably ever get caught ignoring.
I have recently found a CFI that has no problems giving a BFR in my ELSA experimental (That alone was a negative factor that I had never anticipated). we have a couple of hours already getting acquainted, looking good for me now.
