The all-composite Dornier Seastar completed a demo tour of the U.S. and Canada in mid-May, then flew to Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, for a C-check. The tour will resume after the maintenance is done and will cover Europe, India and Asia. Dornier Seastar said it will announce the upcoming destinations this month. The 12-seat twin-turbine amphibian is already FAA and EASA certified. In the third quarter of this year, Dornier Seastar expects to announce selection of a production site, and under review are locations in Canada, China and India. First deliveries of new Seastars are scheduled for early 2015.
