primarily focusing on individual custom-built airplanes. The company is able to carry out all kinds of modifications according to customer requirements. Each customer can therefore get a unique airplane that best suits their needs.

One of the top priorities of BRM AERO is the emphasis on innovation and continuous development of manufactured aircraft. The company also offers advice on choosing components to suit the intended use of the airplane, such as the right instrument panel or combination of engine and propeller.

BRM AERO Founders

BRISTELL Milan Bristela


CEO, Founder

Milan Bristela is a founder and the Chief Executive Officer of BRM AERO s.r.o. The main aim of the company is to develop, produce and sell ultralight and light sport aircraft.

Milan graduated in aircraft construction and production at the Antonin Zapotocky Military Academy in Brno. He has worked in the aviation industry since 1983, the year he graduated from university. Over the years, he has gained experience not only in the field of aircraft construction and design but also in marketing and international trade. Milan founded BRM AERO s.r.o. in 2009 with a simple yet ambitious goal – to develop the best aircraft in its category in the world. He rented some premises and began developing and producing the first airplane together with his son Martin, who stands at the core of the company today. After the successful certification of the first Bristell prototype OK-QAR25, Milan has established cooperation with a network of distributors in selected foreign territories. In 2011, the company began selling the first version of BRISTELL Classic, a fixed-gear aircraft. In 2012, he developed a retractable gear aircraft, BRISTELL RG, followed a year later by BRISTELL TDO, a spur gear aircraft. The company grew, moving to its own premises 5 years later. Over the next two years, the production capacity more than doubled.

In the development of BRISTELL aircraft, Milan adheres to the following essential requirements: safety, ergonomics, excellent flight characteristics and timeless design. BRISTELL airplanes are designed with enlarged rigid cockpit to ensure maximum safety of the crew. A rescue system is included in the basic equipment. The perfect ergonomics of the cockpit provide a very comfortable flying experience and minimise pilot fatigue during longer flights. The superb flight characteristics will be appreciated by both beginner and experienced pilots alike. BRISTELL airplanes are very easy to fly. They are designed to forgive potential pilot mistakes, eliminate inconvenient situations and give their owners a perfect flying experience every time. The overall design and aesthetics of the aircraft are based on simple yet elegant curves that emphasise the overall aerodynamic shape.

BRISTELL Martin Bristela


Founder, BRM AERO Pilot

Milan’s son Martin is a partner and the chief pilot at BRM AERO. He and his father established the company in the autumn of 2009. Martin’s area of expertise is also in automotive mechanics which he is able to draw on in avionics as well. In 2012, he acquired his UL pilot license, upgrading a year later to a PPL license. His vast experience in flying and the observations he has gained provide valuable feedback for further development and innovation of Bristell aircraft. Martin has built close relationships with all the foreign distributors as well as customers who visit the company for BRISTELL service inspections.



BRM AERO started in 2009 with two employees. Over the years, the team has grown to more than 130 employees. The vision to produce luxurious high-quality airplanes brings high demands. One of the main priorities of the company is choosing the right people for the job. Every single team member forms an indispensable link to the whole chain and it is thanks to this continuity that BRISTELL airplanes can be created. We want our people to give their best and so we also offer them perfect working conditions. Our own manufacturing facilities, situated within the local airport, are the best facilities not only for our employees but also for our customers and business partners from all over the world.
