Savback to distribute Mayman Speeder in Nordic region
Savback Helicopters has signed a sales representation agreement with US-based Air Utility Vehicle (AUV) manufacturer, Mayman Aerospace.
Effective immediately, the deal gives the Sweden-based firm exclusive distribution rights for the eight-turbine, HSVTOL aircraft in Nordic countries. Savback said plans to target defence, forestry, oil and gas, and civil applications for Mayman’s AUV.
The Speeder is currently in advanced development, aiming to begin US FAA certification by the final quarter of 2024, and begin series production for civil applications once certified.
“We are hugely excited to begin marketing the Speeder aircraft,” said Reja Savback, Savback, CEO. “Its projected manoeuvrability, high speed and heavy payload capabilities means Speeder is going to be very attractive for customers looking to fulfil complex missions, far beyond the reach of conventional helicopters.”
Savback added: “The option to remotely pilot, or even autonomously pilot, further strengthens its complementary value to our existing portfolio of aviation products. We are looking forward to hosting a series of presentations for prospective customers.”
Mayman said: “The agreement with Savback adds an experienced, knowledgeable distributor to our group and we are extremely pleased that Michael and his team will be representing us in a region where the terrain, weather and missions will be very well served by Speeder. We very much look forward to delivering our first Speeder to a Savback customer.”
