European Bristell trip

14 June 2013

At the Aero Friedrichshafen Show



2 days after a busy, busy NatFly, I flew out to visit Milan at the BRM Aero Bristell factory to see some of the new manufacturing processes first hand and discuss with Milan some of the exciting new ideas and plans for future Bristell models. I also had the opportunity to meet with some of the Bristell supplier's, such as COO Andrew Barker and Technical support Lucas Massengale from TruTrack Flight Systems (USA) and learn how their products are being developed with new technologies and a day spent at Woodcomp going through their new props, hydraulic prop controllers and construction techniques.

My visit was also planned to coincide with the Aero Friedrichshafen Show in Southern Germany. It was great to see so many LSA aircraft on display and be able to wander around and closely compare them all. It quickly confirmed for me that the quality package of the Bristell is second to none and I can promote these remarkable aircraft with true passion and commitment. With the new retractable undercarriage models progressing and some orders being confirmed, I am looking forward to an exciting time ahead in the growing Bristell community.
