A Couple of New Bristell NG 5s

I was interested to see that a couple of new Bristell NG-5 aircraft were registered in January 2018.  These are not our first Bristell aircraft as ZK-LMR has been operated by Aero Hire at Whakatane since mid 2013.

The 2 new Bristell's were imported by local agents Anderson Aviation of Taupiri in the Waikato.  The principals of Anderson Aviation are Bill Henwood and Martin Henton, and their website is http://www.andersonaviation.com.au/about-us

ZK-NGT (c/n 307/218) is owned by C B McRae of Pokeno.

and ZK-NGZ (c/n 306/2018) is owned by Martin Henton of Taupiri.

The Bristell was designed by Milan Bristela and is manufactured by BRM Aero of the Czech Republic.  It is of all metal construction and you can see the factory video HERE  Both of the new Bristell's are registered as LSAs.

And we will see another one here as an ex-UK example, G-STLL, is at Solo Wings at Tauranga.  I also understand that a Bristell aircraft will be displayed at the NZ Field Days at Mystery Creek between 13 and 16 June.
