Savback Helicopters is bringing the Italian-built two-seat Zefhir helicopter at the Private Flyer show, part of The Elite Series, at Wycombe Air Park this week. 

The Zefhir helicopter, developed by CURTI Aerospace, has been designed for the discerning private pilot as a high-quality, two-seat single-turbine aircraft.  Its airframe and components have been designed to meet the exacting requirements of EASA CS-27, with its carbon fibre airframe and the largest luggage space in its category.  Light, efficient and durable composite rotor blades and an elegant and clean interior add to its style. The CURTI company draws on decades of experience in the production of complex parts for certified helicopters.

Matching state-of-the-art materials and technology with a passion for flying deeply rooted in the company’s DNA, Zefhir gives the perfect synthesis between competence and intuition. Its Italian design is reflected in its attention to detail.  Zefhir is presented as a ‘jewel of modern technology and materials,’ right down to its elegant lines and exclusive style interiors.

“The Zefhir also offers a unique option – an innovative extra safety feature – a ballistic parachute which deploys in the unlikely event of engine failure or pilot incapacitation,” commented Nabore Benini, Vice President, CURTI.  “This makes it the first and only helicopter in the world with a tried and tested parachute,” he added.
