Unique accessories allow any Savage to be customized extensively. Many pilots still believe several limitations apply to a taildragger airplane, but
actually these peculiar characteristics are more often converted into big advantages. The Savage is able to land on a glacier with skis, in a canyon,
riverbank or beach thanks to the bushwheels, or on water with special floats. In special landings of this sort, the wide visibility and the taildragger
configuration are a great advantage, as many pilots can testify. Tandem seating configuration (another aspect often seen as a limit) has repeatedly
proved to be a bonus as well. It’s sufficient to look at what types of airplanes are used in professional bush flying to understand the concepts that
have inspired us.
The ease with which repairs can be made to the Tig-welded (4130) structure of the fuselage and to the covering system, is a great advantages for bush
flying, as also the Piper Cub, which uses the same construction techniques, has amply demonstrated over its history in this special sector of
Savage aircrafts have proven to offer very good value for the money. It is something inherent with the longevity of the construction, and with the
fact that it is one of the few in this niche market, but second hand Savage aircrafts, when sold, retain a very high resale value. It is no mistery,
but it happens also with the Piper Cub, that after 40 years of life costs still often more than a totally new Savage. This is due to the Classic
style and the good reputation of these special aircrafts...and we are now proud to start to be considered one of the creators of one of these special
planes. In our case, the added value of elegance, customization options and modern features and equipment, together with the weight to power ratios
offered, high payloads, and certification category as LSA, adds versatility and meets probably even better a nowadays market demand, than the
Piper Cub itself.
We are able to register the Savage as a Ultralight in Europe, as an LSA in the USA, Brazil, Australia and Israel, and even as an Experimental in
the countries where this applies. Different names for a single category . . . and the same results. Despite rising operational costs in general
aviation, in fact, the dream and feeling of freedom of private and leisure aviation can survive, and Savage aircrafts have always been part of
Savage pilots, due to its growing number, are well organized today in a Savage Owners Group, where they share their experiences, they meet for
special fly-ins (usually in places where no other aircraft can land…), and organize special events. In fact, flying the Savage, beside any other
consideration, means also being part of a global and big family of equally enthusiastic pilots!
