 Yes....all stall are imminent, which means recovery is initiated at the first sign of the stall, such as a buffet or an indication on the AOA

At 4000 feet AGL with 4000 RPM.

Set up plane in landing configuration, with neutral trim, 10 degrees flap, and slow to 45 KIAS lift off speed with 4000 RPM. Gently pull back while keeping the ball centered.  Recover at first sign of stall.

Can I practice stalls solo?

NO.

All stalls are practiced with a CFI on board. You can practice slow flight solo.

 We prepared all of our students to be very competent when landing in cross winds. We do GPA training with cross winds to achieve this goal. Students will usually complete GPA training, then work on normal landings and be ready to solo at about 30 hours.

The waterproof wing lockers hold 44 pounds each right over the center of gravity. This is the safest place to put heavy items and remain in balance.

Why did Milan choose nose wheel steering?

Nose wheel steering is the safest. If you have a worn brake lining and loose a brake, you can still control direction on a landing with a steerable nose wheel.

NO! The Bristell wing attaches to the main spar which extends 18 inch on either side of the fuselage. Pilots do not need to step over a flap. We have wing lockers.

Does the Bristell have more dihedral than the competition?

What is the number one reason a pilot might want to consider a Bristell?

Does the Bristell have more dihedral than the competition?

image29

 Yes! Just look at the ground clearance to the wing.

The Bristell dihedral allows for landing in strong crosswinds and provides natural wing leveling qualities.

Our customers who are accustomed to having a plane with a recovery system order a chute. 

Our customers who do not want the weight or expense do not.

The 44 pound weight of the chute adds about 5% to the weight of the aircraft, therefore, you need more room for takeoff, your climb is less, your service ceiling is less and you may need to carry less fuel to stay under gross weight.

You cannot add a BRS Recovery System after the plane is built. However, we order some of our demo planes with chute pre-wire so the chute can be added later.
