One Bristol P.T.M. 2-seater biplane delivered in April 1926, following an offer by Bristol in October 1924 to supply six. The type was variously known as the Bristol Trainer, Bristol Primary Trainer and P.T.M. (Primary Training Machine) or Type 83A. The aircraft was fitted with a 120 hp Bristol Lucifer engine and known in Bulgaria as the 'Bristol Lucifer'. Used by the Hunting Yato. Date withdrawn from service not known. The registration B-BEPI has also been qouted for this aircraft.
Four Bristol Tourer biplane aircraft ordered from the manufacturer by Bulgarian Department of Posts and Telegraphs in August 1923. (The Type 29A Tourer was a reconditioned Bristol Fighter adapted for civil transport use). The Bulgarian aircraft were fitted with lower-powered 180 hp Wolseley Viper engines. Two aircraft (designated 'Bulgarian Tourer' or Type 88) delivered to Bojourishte, near Sofia in April 1924. The balance of the order was held pending service trials. Three further aircraft of improved specification ordered April 1926, and delivered in May 1926. The second batch was designated 'Improved Bulgarian Tourer' or Type 88A and featured a revised radiator design. The aircraft were considered accident-prone and did not stay in service for long. Date withdrawn from service not known.
