INTRODUCTION

BRISTELL NG 5 LSA, RG

The BRISTELL RG european version has a retractable undercarriage – an ideal aeroplane for secondary training and economical cross-country flights. It hasn’t made it to the states yet. In order to bring it to the states we need to complete our Kit Evaluation Team review with the FAA at our Lancaster facility. The paperwork has been submitted and we can expect to begin building them as factory assist Experimentals sometime in 2021. At the moment, we’d have to fly the plane Experimental Exhibition Only. *This designation would place some serious limits on the owner/user and that’s why we haven’t done it so far.

Thanks to the combined comfort of good ergonomic design in the largest cockpit in its category, this aeroplane is the ideal vehicle for long cross-country flights. Retracting the gear has offered us about 10 additional knots of cruise speed. The BRISTELL RG version has heavy-duty wing spars in the standard configuration, which make cross- country flights much safer in extreme weather conditions.
