The Savage went into production in Italy between 1997 and 1998. The Savage went into production in Italy between 1997 and 1998. The idea was to create an aircraft with good handling and STOL characteristics, with classic and well proven design and traditional construction that would be economic and easy to build and repair.
A particular weakness for one of the aviation legends of 20th century, -the Piper Cub-, drove the designer of the SAVAGE and his team, the aeronautical engineers Bonaldo, Franchini and Vizzini (the latter had worked at Aeritalia, and spent a long period at Boeing in Seattle before moving on to Aermacchi) to build several prototypes that would become the basis for the definitive Savage.
Conceived with the most advanced CAD design and simulation software (CATIA and NASTRAN), the Savage went through an intensive process of validation static and in-flight tests to confirm the excellent validity of the design, and its compliance with the most stringent industry standards for the design and manufacture of light aircrafts. Shortly after its conception, just before the official market introduction, the Savage won the first prize as the best ultralight aircraft built from plans (at the Italian Experimental Aircraft Association Meeting at Carpi, Italy, in 1999).
In 1999, production moved to the Czech Republic and since that time has been carried out by the aeronautical manufacturer Zlin Aviation S.R.O. employing the best aeronautical materials from the USA, Italy and France, and the most competent and specialized workforce.
All workers are fully qualified and have gained extensive experience in the country’s most important aeronautical companies (Moravan, Let, etc.).
The production line features a whole series of construction quality controls in compliance with an internally established Quality Assurance Program. The aircraft has several type-approvals in different countries.
By December 2012, more than 250 Savage have been delivered to different countries worldwide (with an order book of 280). We are always on the lookout for new markets and new dealers, so do not hesitate to let us know, if you think you can become part of our dealer’s network. read more...
