The Italian manufacturer Curti Industries and the international distributor Savback Helicopters have entered into a new partnership for the promotion and sale of the Zefhir helicopter in all of Northern Europe.
On the rapidly evolving light helicopter market, Curti is bringing innovation in both technology and safety, with its lightweight turbine helicopter, Zefhir. Savback Helicopters is delighted to announce this new partnership to bring the innovation to the Northern European markets, including Sweden, Norway, Finland, Latvia and Russia, amongst others.
Zefhir raises the bar in safety and performance in the newborn 600 kilogram ultralight category; the innovative and disruptive ballistic parachute, as well as the overall attention to safety in the design, manufacturing and validation processes, are the key elements of this helicopter.
The parachute, extensively tested as never documented before in aviation history, is a safety device designed to provide an alternative solution added to autorotation that can be used when auto rotation is not possible, due to technical issues or other obstacles. The quick deployment of the parachute makes the device effective at the low altitude of 150 meters.
