ROLE

Dornier SeaStar

The Dornier Seastar is a turboprop-powered amphibious aircraft built largely
of composite materials. Developed by professor Claudius Dornier Jr of
Germany, it first flew in 1985. The design is owned by Claudius Jr's son,
Conrado, who founded Dornier Seawings AG (now Dornier
Seaplane Company) 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 Do 18 of the 1930s.

The first prototype, a proof-of-concept aircraft using the metal wings from a
Dornier Do 28 and with large struts bracing the wing to the sponsons, made
its maiden flight from Hamburg on 17 August 1984. The second prototype,
representing the definitive design was larger, and featured a new, unbraced
composite wing. It first flew from Oberpfaffenhofen on 24 April 1987.
In October 2009, Dornier Seaplane announced that it would launch production
of the Seastar.

In May 2010, Dornier Seaplane announced that it would build the Seastar
in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, about half an hour away from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
