Dornier Seastar
Amphibious Aircraft Designed To Purpose

The Seastar aircraft is engineered to operate from runway and water surfaces. It can perform airport to airport missions with its short field take-off and landing capabilities. At the same time, it is able to take-off and land on water, even under rough conditions. This unrivalled versatility and performance along with best-in-class cabin space, allows for entirely new missions. In the spirit of pioneering Dornier flying boats, the Seastar is superior in every important measure – speed, range, safety, cabin size and lower maintenance costs.
