Missions


The Seastar is a multi-purpose aircraft delivering unmatched versatility at low operating costs. It covers a wide range of missions from VIP-transport, commercial, governmental/special missions and corporate. Just tell us your requirements and we will tailor the Seastar to meet your demands.

 

VIP Missions

The Seastar is the ultimate amphibian for discerning owners looking for a comfortable and sound performer on water as well as on land, providing you with fast access to yachts, waterfront property, isolated lakes, ocean bays and island coves or just airport to airport connections. Whatever the destination—the Seastar is the safest and most enjoyable way to get there.

Luxurious seating and a spacious cabin with large windows and ample storage ensure passengers a comfortable ride. The executive interior offers ergonomically designed seating and an optional lavatory. With a choice of premium-quality leathers, fabrics, wood veneers and metal plating, the interior can be personalized to suit individual taste. A large door allows for easy passenger boarding and cargo loading. In-flight access to bags and luggage complete the exceptional experience of travelling with your personal Seastar.



Commercial Missions

Able to operate on water or land, the Seastar provides unforeseen flight opportunities for commercial operators. Its “flying boat” design enables to land in sea states with up to two-foot waves (demonstrated but not limiting). Moreover, due to the Seastar’s ability of using a ramp to transition between water and land, passengers may board the aircraft without the need of an airport.

Cost per nautical mile and cost per seat mile are significantly lower compared with other aircraft of its size, due to better fuel efficiency and significantly reduced maintenance cost. The Seastar is the only aircraft in its class with a corrosion-free, highly damage tolerant airframe. All this results in less downtime and greater residual value.


Governmental and Special Missions

The Seastar is the ideal aircraft for operations such as coastal surveillance, patrolling, environmental control, fisheries protection, emergency medical services, search and rescue, drug interdiction; disaster relief to name a few. It has the unique capability to combine both surveillance and immediate intervention by landing on water—wherever necessary. Used as a multi-role platform the Seastar is able to perform the combined operational tasks usually requiring both air and seaborne assets. The sponsons act as a working and docking platform. This ability to combine asset tasking will produce faster response times, increase operational flexibility and reduce costs in comparison with the use of existing fixed wing, helicopter and seaborne assets. Operating in single-engine mode extends on-station endurance up to 9,3 hours.


Corporate Missions

With comfortable seating for up to twelve passengers and low direct operating cost (DOC), the Seastar is the best choice for fast transportation and corporate mobility on water and land. It can be configured to fulfil a wide range of special missions.
