BRISTELL LSA Makes U.S. Debut
The BRISTELL, an all-metal, low-wing LSA from Liberty Sport Aviation, made its debut appearance in North America at AOPA Summit in Hartford, Connecticut.
Built in the Czech Republic by manufacturer BRMAero, the BRISTELL features a 51-inch-wide cockpit and large canopy that give it the feel of a larger airplane. Powered by a 100 hp Rotax 912 engine, the BRISTELL has a useful load of 617 pounds and a range of 700 nautical miles. BRMAero has built 42 examples of the airplane and announced the first two sales to buyers in the United States. Base price is $125,000 and rises to $150,000 with options.
Credit for the BRISTELL’s attractive design goes to Milan Bristela, who also had a hand in the design of the Evektor SportStar and PiperSport. In the U.S., a new company, BRISTELL - USA, has been formed to market the airplane.
