Description: The Dornier Seawings Seastar is a turboprop-powered amphibious aircraft built largely of composite materials. Developed by Claudius Dornier Seastar GmbH & Co KG Dornier GmbH from Germany, it first flew in 1985. The design is owned by Claudius Dornier's son, Conrado, who founded Dornier Seawings AG to continue work on the project.
The Seastar is a parasol wing flying boat, with its two engines mounted in a single nacelle over the wings in a push-pull configuration. In general layout, it strongly resembles Dornier's celebrated Do 18 of the 1930s.
