Aero-TV: Checking Out The Bristell -- The New LSA Bird On the Block

A New LSA Bird Tries To Take On The Industry

One of the more pleasant aspects of getting to those aviation events that still manage to draw a crowd, is to see what's new and interesting in the latest crop of flying machines.

At the 2012 US Sport Aviation Expo, the newest kid on the block was a rather cure little bird by the name of "Bristell." While admittedly a bit similar in form and configuration to a number of competing birds, it seemed that Bristell was an attempt to maximize what people liked about the current crop of low-wing sport flyers into one new airframe.

Bristell is the product of designer Milan Bristela, already well-known for previous efforts with the Piper Sport, and Evektor SportStar. Somewhat derivative, the Bristell is an attempt to go those designs 'one better' and incorporate the experiences he has had with those previous airframes in this updated design.

Manufactured by BRM Aero in the Czech Republic, the Bristell’s 100 HP ROTAX 912S cruises at 135 mph and boasts a max range of 'over 800 miles in less than 6 hours!' The Bristell has a wing span of 29.95 ft, an empty weight of 705.5 lbs, and a maximum take-off weight of 1320 pounds -- leaving a useful load of 616.5 pounds. Its wing loading is 10.45 lbs./sq. ft.
