Although my typical demo flights average under 45 minutes, you can still learn a lot about an airplane in less than an hour. With S-LSA like the BRM Aero Bristell Fastback, it takes more like 45 seconds for you to realize you’ve got a winner on your hands.
The Bristell is refined, clean and stylish, with a less rakish profile than the SportCruiser but a sleeker one than the Evektor SportStar series. I name those airplanes since they, too, were in part created by Milan Bristela of Czech Republic, who first sketched out the Bristell in 2007. Production commenced after a long development process in early 2011. As such, the all-aluminum bird represents his most seasoned offering yet. More than 50 have sold overseas, and production rate is planned for four planes per month by summer.
