2010: The Dornier Seastar CD 2, slated to be the world’s most advanced seaplane, has now gone into production. InterGlobe General Aviation Pvt. Ltd, has been announced as the exclusive representative for Dornier Seaplane Company in SAARC (including Mauritius).
The new fully certified all composite twin engine seaplane provides fast cruise speeds, a comfortable cabin, safe security and reliability, making it the most apt seaplane for the vast coastlines of Sri Lanka, India, Maldives and Mauritius.
The seaplane is being assembled at the new facility in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu in the southern suburb of Montreal, Canada. Dornier chose this location due to its proximity to Lake Champlain for demonstration and flight test activities and also because of the importance of Montreal as a transportation hub with skilled aerospace labour pool in the area.
