New LSA - Bristell, Sting S4, SportCruiser or ?

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Congratulations, Richard! Beautiful seats and panel layout! Looking forward to more pics of the plane when it arrives!

Nice clean looking interior. Very well laid out IMO.

As it happens, in 2015 I acquired three new (to me) vehicles: an Evektor SportStar Max, a Porsche Cayman, and a Can-Am Spyder RT touring trike. And all three have cup holders!

With 51 inaches of shoulder room (LSA industry leader), who needs cup holders?
Just lay them on the side bookcase. :D

Just in case anybody is wondering . . . I love the Bristell.
If it just wasn't so darn heavy!

The extra fasteners on the velcro strips right where you can reach them is a great feature!

Beautiful interior!

Looks gorgeous Rick! So jealous. I had the privilege of flying in a 2017 Bristell with a 912 iS engine and was extremely impressed. I spend all day in Sportcruiser’s instructing and there’s a lot more that’s different than similar with the Sportcruiser. It truly does feel like a clean sheet design. The control harmony was really nice too!
