BRM AERO is the brainchild of Milan Bristela, the aeronautical engineer designer, factory owner, and creator of the Bristell Light Sport Aircraft. Over 120 aircraft were built last year.  Serial number 950 will roll off the production line before the end of 2024. Milan has grown the company slowly and with very little debt. He needs very few plane sales per year to keep the factory in great financial condition.
His reputation for design excellence and "ground up" 3D Auto Cad design programs make the Bristell lighter, faster, and stronger than most of the competition. The Bristell is unmatched for fit and finish. It is beautifully crafted and designed to accommodate pilots from 5'2" to 6'8". The 51 inch wide cabin is widest in class and allows room for a wide array of Garmin Avionics. The wing storage lockers are right on the center of gravity and hold 44 pounds each.  BRM AERO custom luggage bags can be fully packed at home and the pilot can be assured it will fit in the wing locker. Two airline style carry on bags will fit easily behind the seats and and that storage area can hold 33 pounds. Your 30 pound dog is very comfortable in the storage area behind the seats. There is also a hat shelf for up to 7 pounds. 
Milan's passion for building a great plane is signified with his slogan on every plane, "Wings with Heart". His attention to detail has helped create a strong (157 KIAS Vne) aircraft that is light weight, which results in superior climb rates. Our 915iS Turbo LSA can climb to 10,000 feet in only 6 minutes. The Bristell design and light weight has made it possible to use 4 different Rotax engines including the 141HP 915iS Turbo engine and 162HP 916iS engine. Many of our Bristell's have a empty weight of only 780 pounds, resulting in a 540 pound useful load and 440 pound payload for pilot, passenger and 4 hours of fuel.
The thought and care that has gone into the design of each model is clear to all those who are fortunate enough to have flown in a Bristell or, indeed, own one. For example, the convenient latching canopy design results in a tight closing canopy that keeps the cabin warm when needed and large four inch vents provide great outside airflow to maintain a cool cockpit.  Owners taxi with the canopy open and remain comfortable even on 90 degree days.
The wing design is special to the Bristell as the wing spar extends 18" out from the fuselage. This means that the pilot steps on the spar and not on the wing or over a flap when getting into the Bristell.  The Bristell will never need wing repairs due to years of pilots stepping on the wing to enter the plane.

Evan worked with the FAA to get our LSA Bristell aircraft approved in our Part 141  Mid Island Flying School. Mid Island was able to sell its Piper arrow since the Technically Advanced Bristell aircraft can be use to meet the commercial pilot requirements.
