|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.
