Dornier Seawings sincerely invites you and your family to visit the Dornier Museum Friedrichshafen by the beautiful Bodensee, and see the first generation of the Dornier Seastar CD2 in display!
This generation of Seastar was completed in the 80s, and has received it type certificate from EASA on 1990. It is a very valuable asset of Dornier Seawings, and had until now been hangarized in Oberpfaffenhofen for the research and development of the new generation Seastar. This special exhibition is the first time ever that it is shown in front of the curious eyes of the fans and friends.
The Seastar embodies the nostalgic elegance of the flying boat era, but it also has its modern missions. Compared to land airplanes, the flying boat requires minimal infrastructure for operation, which minimizes impacts for environment. Compared with helicopters, the Seastar is faster, less expensive to operate and can land on water on search and rescue missions.
This special exhibition is only for 6 months, and is a rare, exclusive opportunity to see the Seastar up close. Do not miss the chance!
