Savback is a trusted, international and independent vendor of new and pre-owned helicopters. These core offerings are underpinned by expert helicopter buying & selling services and consultancy.
We are an agile yet capable family-run company with an enviable reputation, international reach and innovative future focus. Since 1990 we have sold over 900 helicopters, providing many satisfied private, public and commercial clients.
We deliver an experience combining the best possible commercial performance and customer benefits across investment value and operational costs, safety, sustainability and technology. We are known and respected by all the leading helicopter manufacturers, so we can offer clients independent advice on their new helicopter selection as well as taking care of the sourcing and purchasing across all makes and models.
We are also the sole exclusive distributor worldwide of the GHT Helicopters G-250 Eagle and the sole exclusive distributor for Zefhir ultra-light helicopters in Southeast Asia, Northern Europe, Russia and CIS States.
Savback Helicopters was founded in 1999 by Michael Savbäck. Michael has been active in the helicopter business for over thirty years and has established his name, and the company, in the world of helicopter trading and marketing, achieving in the process a well-earned reputation.
Michael has had a long and highly successful association with Airbus Helicopters, commencing in 1990. This relationship spawned Savback Helicopters with the company officially representing Airbus Helicopters in Sweden and Finland between 1999 and 2018. During this time Savback grew the market share and sold over 260 new helicopters. Savback has also provided Independent Representation for Bell in the region.
For several years, Savback was the sole distributor for the Cabri Guimbal G2 in Sweden, Finland and Norway. A breakout and innovative piston engine light helicopter model designed by former Eurocopter engineer Bruno Cabri.
Beyond rotary winged aircraft – the niche in which he has carved his expert reputation – Michael is understandably proud of his broader-based background in aerospace and aviation. Notably his time at SAAB, initially with the 340 twin turboprop transport project and then the Gripen JAS fighter. Also in this period, Savback represented Bombardier Aerospace in Sweden. Two further endorsements by leading international original equipment manufacturing (OEM) brands with outstanding product portfolios who put their trust in Savback.
Savback is still very much a hands-on, family-owned business, supported by a talented team of specialists. Whilst we are an agile company with truly global reach, we are proud of our Swedish heritage.
Today, along with our longstanding relationships with key manufacturers and Ultra-light agencies, with customer care as our guiding principle, we are now working on a number of exciting new initiatives that we believe will revolutionize the helicopter market.
This is an exciting time for Savback Helicopters and, as the future beckons, we are optimistic about the opportunities, in full control of our destiny, and committed to our vision.
