BRISTELL 915 TURBO with 141HP Fuel Injected Rotax engine
What do I do when the lane light comes on?
Answer: Ace mechanic Rich Maisano
Long story short;
What that fault means is a misfire on that cylinder. The Ecu (Electronic Control Unit) is taking millions of samples a second. If it gets one hiccup it triggers an Ecu fault. We have been seeing sporadic intermittent Ignition issues on many Bristell 915 Turbos. It can happen every flight which is definitely a defective part. If it occurs only once every 10 flights, we have found it can be anything from a spark plug to an ignition module to a bad contact on the ground wire terminal block. Monitor how frequently it happens. Recycle the lane and continue flying. If it happens on many flights, it’s definitely an issue and we will have to diagnose it.

My goal is to have the safest aircraft in the USA. I believe over time insurance companies will insure Bristell aircraft for lower rates than other planes due to the low number of accidents. If Bristell owners complete our Landing Doctor training program and fly within their Personal Limitations, I believe they will stay safe and have fewer accidents than any other aircraft in the country.

Jan 2022 Delta Airlines announcement in the Wall Street Journal
Delta will no longer require airline pilot applicants to have a college Degree.
This is great new for our Sebring Flight Academy where we can prepare a new pilot for an airline career in half the time and half the cost.
To keep up with any service bulletins that may apply to your Bristell, go to basecamp. Since 2008 there has just been one service bulletin for the Bristell aircraft. It requied Bristell 912iS 100 hp engines to replace the engine mount bolts at the next inspection if they looked okay on the day you received the service bulletin
