Westwind Aviation

(2011) LIMITED

Your New Zealand Company for the I.C.P. srl range of aircraft including the Savannah S. Based at Forest Field aerodrome (NZFF) in Canterbury, we supply ready to build kits and provide support for your build in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. In addition we can supply Rotax (TM) engines, your choice of propellers and spare parts when required. We are able to assist in any build or assemble one with your selected options for you to fly away.

There are over 300 Savannah aircraft flying in Australasia. There are now numerous aircraft at various stages of being built in New Zealand.

We offer the Savannah S aircraft kit as either a kitset, partially built or fully factory built version. The kits have options included for a standard New Zealand build. These are; adjustable seats, long range tanks, (4 x 36L for a range of almost 8 hours @ 18.5 Liters per hour), lockable recessed fuel tanks, a modified front axle, heater demister, the extended baggage compartment and an Outside Air Temperature sensor. A factory built aircraft option suitable for New Zealand Flight Training organisations is available and a quote obtained, upon request.

The Savannah S kit is sold with everything you need to build the aircraft except paint, Rotax (TM) engine, propeller and a VHF radio. All required instrumentation is included (look at the photos on this website) and the electrical wiring harness is pre assembled for ease of installation. It is therefore not a difficult build.

However you will need a decent air compressor. I suggest you go to one of those big home handyman stores or your favorite engineering supply place and look about, they cost around about $400 for a suitable unit. While you can convert the box the kit comes in into a build table, look at the photo above and spot the 2 build tables and mobile parts holder purchased from Stack-it Storage. www.stakit.co.nz or call 0800STACKIT. Even after the build, you will find use for them in your shed or garage.

In addition the Sport Aircraft Association has a great website for home builders. I suggest you check out the ‘Aircraft Building’ drop down menu for a selection of common tools you will need. While a pair is supplied, I recommend you purchase a very comfortable set of ‘cleco’ pliers and about an extra 100 copper and 100 black cleco’s. Steve Noad at Aircraft Logistics, Rangiora Airport can supply and ship these to you. Call him on 03 3107290.
