He can still teach EFIS (avionics, autopilots) at night under IFR in IMC and he can even show how to use FIKI systems in real ice, the student will log PUT but can't log IFR or BSRFI/Night time
Actually some "type/variant features" like adjusting G1000 contrast or dimming lights on Arrow gear are best demonstrated at night
Of course CRI can't teach for the issue of NQ or IR rating or PPL....
I'm not 'up' on the night stuff but it sounds like you are trying to tie a strange knot unnecessarily by doing these things at night. And EFIS is not avionics or autopilots, its 'tellies', but does require 'differences' training and sign-off (CRI can do it).
FIKI is not something that requires additional training according to the regulations, even if it might be a good idea.
For the rest of it, you are correct.
(My previous posting was clarifying a more limited question).
