Savage: Name This Plane

Savage Cub-S
Savage Outback

Formerly known as the Savage Cub-S, this 180hp, category-leading, light sport aircraft (LSA) for on-and-off-runway operation will now be known as the Savage Outback. And it’s Rotax-powered sibling, the Savage Cub, will now be known as the Savage Nomad.

SportairUSA, LC, the U.S. distributor of Savage Outback, Nomad, Cruiser and Classic and Bobber aircraft, announced the winners of a contest to rename the two airplanes at the 2015 U. S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring Florida.

“We originally called them Cub and Cub-S, because they are ‘cub-alike’ airplanes. They were inspired by Piper’s iconic Cub and Super Cub, fulfilling the same mission, but with the benefit of modern materials, technology and equipment.

“Renaming was a risk but we’ve been delighted by the reception here at Sebring for the Outback and Nomad, and we feel that these names do an even better job of reflecting the personality of our aircraft
