Savback Helicopters signed sales representation agreement with Mayman Aerospace. The deal, effective immediately, will see the Sweden-based company market and distribute the compact, high-speed, eight-turbine, heavy-lift vertical takeoff 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. Speeder is currently in advanced development, aiming to begin US FAA certification by Q4 2024, and begin series production for civil applications once certified. 

Savback founder Michael Savback has known Mayman Aerospace’s founder and CEO David Mayman, for many years, with the relationship starting as vendor and customer, and is thrilled to get the opportunity to work with him and the Mayman Aerospace team.

Savback CEO Reja Savback commented: "We are hugely excited to begin marketing the Speeder aircraft. 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.  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.” 

David 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.”
