Update for operators of Bristell light sport aircraft
CASA has today issued a second safety notice for pilots and operators of Bristell light sport aircraft.
This follows our decision to issue operational limitations for particular activities associated with any flying training operation performed by certain variants of the aircraft.
Based on information received to date, we have not received sufficient assurance from the manufacturer as to compliance with the relevant safety standards. We are also concerned as to the reliability of some of the information already provided.
The operational limitations prohibit the conduct of intentional stalls of the aircraft during training or from any activities that could reasonably lead to an unintended stall.
A copy of these operating limitations must be attached to the Special Certificate of Airworthiness, be carried at all times in the aircraft and be readily accessible.
We have written to all Australian registered operators of Bristell light sport aircraft and engaged with other national aviation regulators with regards to their own aircraft fleet.
Read the safety notices issued by CASA on 28 July 2020 and 19 February 2020.
