The Savage Nomad

Fly Your Passion

Any airplane can fly from point A to point B, but the Savage Nomad lets you explore points C, D, E…Z and beyond!

Rediscover the freedom of flight. Add bush gear, floats, skis and advanced avionics, and the Nomad will take you to the limits of your imagination.

Runway Optional

Equip the Nomad with 6” extended landing gear, 1.25” axles, 26” bush wheels (larger sizes available), safety cables and oversized tailwheel, and shake off the bonds of the civilized world.

This is one tough aircraft, designed for beach, gravel bar, mountain and backcountry discovery. That inaccessible fishing hole, hunting spot or camping destination might as well be right outside your door.

Fly, Navigate, Communicate

You can fly with classic instrumentation, or fill the panel with your choice of navigation and communication gear. Options include GPS moving maps (iFly 720 shown), weather display, flight planning, nav-com radio, transponder, TIS, ADS-B, iPad with appropriate apps and more. Call to discuss custom options.

Nimble • Tough • Economical

The Rotax-powered Nomad delivers 515 lbs of useful load along with short take-offs and landings in an economical light sport aircraft. Explore the fields, waters and mountains in your environs and burn less than 5 gallons per hour while doing it!
