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.
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.
You will have the minimum solo time required for the rating you are obtaining.
When I have reach an altitude within 300 feet of the appropriate downwind altitude. You will lower the nose while making this turn and all other turns in the traffic pattern.
Hear what owner Jim Goldman has to say.
Aluminum is proven and will last for over 50 years. We use 4 grades of aluminum to keep the Bristell light so a 6' 8" pilot can fit.
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.
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.
Yes! There is dual shock absorber protection. An inner hydraulic shock absorber and an outer coil spring.
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.
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.
Yes! The Bristell uses massive attached wing bolts as shown in this picture. The Bristell has a 157 knot Vne as a result of it's strength.

The Bristell Vne is 157 knots.
A high Vne means the plane is very strong.
Very stable. Milan Bristela is an aeronautical engineer and the owner of the company. He only needs to sell 24 planes a year to pay his bills. He sold over 120 planes in 2019.
The Bristell canopy closes with an over center closing mechanism that works every time. The tight fitting canopy means a warm cabin when flying at 11,500 feet.
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.
There are cases where a pilot in a light sport aircraft pulled the chute, survived the impact and was badly injured as the plane was dragged along rough terrain.
An off airport landing may be safer than taking a chance on being tangled in high tension wires after a successful chute deployment.
Initial cost about $9000, repack every 5 years about $4000, rocket every 8 years about $3000. Downtime while your plane has the chute serviced.
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.
You can order your Bristell pre-wired for a BRS Recovery System and add a chute later.
