We want to give special thanks to the Safari owners and future owners that came to see us at Sun-N-Fun this year! We had a great time and now we count down the days until AirVentures! Mark your calendar for July 28th– Aug. 3, 2014 to come see us in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
We are excited to welcome our newest dealer Jean Mikellides to the Safari Family. Jean is located in Sorocaba, Brazil and brings many years of aviation experience to the table. Jean has been a dealer for Zenith aircraft for 6 years and started flying fixed wing before his 16th birthday. We can’t wait to see Safari Helicopter flourish in beautiful Brazil!
Gaining an edge!
No more blade tape and the loss of performance!
The latest and greatest from our cockpit to yours – Conformal Vortex Generators (don’t call it blade tape!) make your blades more efficient – less drag, more lift, lower manifold pressure. Rotor blades operate in some very extreme environments, cutting through dust, sand, rain and lots of other things that want to wear them down. You already protect your investment with blade tape, and it impairs the performance of your blades! CVGs are made to fit all Safari composite blades. Each strip is 12″ long. The Safari 400 blade fits 6 CVGs per blade for a total of 12.
Produced by Aerodymix, these CVGs have been awarded an STC for use on the R22 in Australia, with US certificates on the way. CHR International Inc./Safari Helicopter is the worldwide distributor for the experimental helicopter market.
A minimum order of 8 CVG’s are required for purchase. Visit our online store to order your CVG’s today.
Safari Owner/Pilot Jimmy Benson– “The CVG lowered my manifold pressure by an inch and I experienced less vibration. It was easy to install and even easier to repair since it comes in 12″ sections.”
Thanks to everyone who spent time with us at the show this year!
Using the proven transmissions and rotor system of the Safari 400, the new option gives the Safari the sleek new look some of our customers requested. The cabin of this new Safari will retain some of the features most loved by Safari enthusiasts – lots of glass, ample head and shoulder room, and comfortable upright seating. The Safari already includes a number of standard features not usually found on 2 seat helicopters – engine governor, electric cyclic trim, collective friction, transmission chip detectors with alarms, oil sight glasses, and many more. The 500 also includes a feature that everyone will love – air conditioning! Contact us today for more information about making sure you are one of the first to own the best of both worlds – a simple and reliable helicopter that attracts attention everywhere you go!

NOW MORE AFFORDABLE THAN EVER
New “Optional Equipment” For Your Safari
Anyway, long story short, everything worked out great. I donated the helicopter time…only missed the pin by 8 feet (the wind kept changing directions…really, it did…I have witnesses…I’m sticking with that story) and that beat the Robinson by a long way.
This year’s official event photographer didn’t have a clue as to how to get a picture of golf balls coming out of a helicopter. Alisa took the attached pictures during a practice run at home.
Safari Helicopter is honored to welcome Stoco Aeronaves as our newest Safari Dealer. Rodrigo and his family have a deeply rooted aviation background, in both fixed wing and rotor craft. We are excited to welcome such key players from the Brazilian market to the Safari Team.

At this time last year, this helicopter was just a gleam in Larry’s eye! When he ordered his Safari 400 Kit at Oshkosh last year,he told us he would fly it at Oshkosh this year, and fly it he did!
