ICP Savannah SKit OptionsShort Overview
There are over 300 ICP aircraft flying throughout Australasia and numerous aircraft at various stages of being built throughout New Zealand.
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 factory built or ready to build kits. We provide complete 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.
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, Tundra tyres with a modified front nose leg hoop and axle, heater demister, the extended baggage compartment and an Outside Air Temperature sensor. A factory built aircraft option is available.
Everything You Need
The Savannah S kit is sold with virtually everything you need to build the aircraft. However paint, a Rotax 912 ULS (TM) engine, propeller and a VHF radio will be added expenses. All VFR 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 favourite 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. 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 are 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.
