TDO – Tail Dragger Option

INTRODUCTION

BRISTELL NG 5 LSA, TDO

The BRISTELL TDO version has been described as having  retro good looks that are a cross between a classic Porsche with a design nod toward a classic Globe Swift. Retro lines, classic form, and superior function come together with conventional two-wheel fixed gear undercarriage and a  tail wheel. This is the ideal airplane for any tail dragger enthusiast. Thanks to the combination of form, comfort, and of great ergonomic design (with the largest cockpit in its category) this easy landing aircraft sets a new standard for fun flying and for long cross-country flights. The BRISTELL TDO version has a heavy-duty wing span, as do all models sold in the US market.
