The Savannah™ S is I.C.P.’s 2010 innovation. It was born from the wish to make the Savannah™ more refined and elegant and complete the aesthetical improvement process already started with the Savannah™ XL, whose front part fuselage was completely modified.
I.C.P. designers have paid attention to the back side of the aircraft. They have left the wings unchanged, because they have always proved to be the key force of the Savannah™, above all in VG (vortex generators) version, thanks to the combination of the wide wing surface with the high lift profile.
The object of restyling 2010 has been the tail trunk; by removing the corners, the typical squared shape has been replaced by a sinuous bending that gives harmony and completeness to the whole aircraft, without taking away the well known features of solidity and safety.
The new Savannah™ S joins inside all the previous versions’ improvement:
The wings with vortex generators, that imply a cruise speed increase up to180 Km/h, without compromising the very low stalling speed
The cockpit wider dimensions, able to lodge comfortably also the taller pilots
The adjustable rudder pedals, standard or advanced position of 10 cm
The panoramic view thanks to the canopy and the doors fully transparent
Aerodynamic profiling improved thanks to the streamlined engine cowling and to the major slope of the windscreen.
Wider and higher positioned instruments panel, to leave more space to the knees.
