Dornier Seawings Raises €150m Investments

Dornier Seawings GmbH, the German-Chinese joint venture composite aircraft manufacturer, have raised an additional 150-million-euro funding by their shareholders. This investment, confirmed September 2018, will be used for further research and development of the company’s Seastar project, the construction of its manufacturing facilities and the expansion of production.

Dornier Seawings is working on upgrading the Dornier Seastar CD2 into the most advanced amphibious aircraft, answering to the vast market demand. The new generation Seastar prototype had the roll-out on August 18th 2017, and is currently undergoing some design changes and certification tests.

With their accumulated technological capabilities and the market opportunities, Dornier Seawings will implement new aviation products to complement its current product line.
