Savback Helicopters, the independent helicopter and fixed-wing sales specialist, has signed a new sales representation agreement with Mayman Aerospace, the U.S.-based manufacturer of the innovative Speeder Air Utility Vehicle (AUV). The deal, effective immediately, will see the Sweden-based company market and distribute the compact, high-speed, eight-turbine, heavy-lift vertical take-off and landing (HSVTOL) aircraft, exclusively in the Nordic countries.
Savback will be targeting defence, forestry, oil and gas and civil applications for Mayman Aerospace, a newly introduced brand of JetPack Aviation Corporation.
Savback sales representatives Michael Savback, Fredrik Bergman in Sweden and Stephen Mitchell in the UK will be leading sales and marketing efforts. When serial production starts Savback also intends to acquire a demonstrator of its own.
The Speeder is currently in advanced development, aiming to begin U.S. FAA certification by Q4 2024 and begin series production for civil applications once certified.
