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!

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!

After a long struggle with illness, Bill “Flangehead” Meyer has passed away. Many in the experimental helicopter community know him as the driving force behind the organization and management of Choppertown at the SunNFun Air Show in Lakeland, Florida. Those of us who knew Bill and Bobbie realized that SunNFun 2011 would likely by Bill’s last show, and quite a show it was. One little tornado was not enough to stop Bill, and he demonstrated the ?*$@* and vinegar that made him uniquely “Flangehead”. Bill’s drive and determination were the reason “Choppertown” existed at the show, and he will be missed by us all.
