Dornier goes with ACM for the first time to build its cockpit and cabin

27th June 2017 – Aircraft Cabin Modification GmbH (ACM) is developing and constructing the cockpit and cabin for Dornier’s new flagship, the Seastar CD2 amphibious aircraft. This order marks a new milestone in the history of ACM. The company, which up to now specialised only in cabin interiors, is for the first time developing both the cockpit and the cabin for a new aircraft.

Dornier Seawings is presenting the latest generation of amphibious aircraft – the Seastar CD2 – which sets new standards in the areas of speed, range, safety, cabin size and low maintenance costs. Some well-known figures have also placed pre-orders for the new two-engine aircraft that can be used anywhere thanks to its ability to land on both land and water.

The highest quality cockpit and cabin
“Being able to develop and build the cockpit as well as the cabin for an aircraft prototype like the new Seastar is something very special for ACM”, says ACM managing director Roger Hohl enthusiastically. “For the first time in the history of our company, we are responsible for more than providing a comfortable and exclusive cabin interior, we are also providing the cockpit.” It will be fitted out with the latest ‘state of the art’ future-proof fittings.

On-site mobile workshop
The Seastar is currently in the prototype stage. The engineers from ACM and Dornier are therefore working together to develop a mock-up for the roll-out. This mock-up is like a 1:1 scale model of the cockpit and the cabin. ACM is carrying out this work with their mobile workshop unit at Dornier’s site at the special Oberpfaffenhofen airport. “The work we are putting into everything from development, design, and choice of materials, through to effective construction, is an exciting challenge as we are presented with questions such as where is the best place to attach a ship’s anchor to the aircraft”, explains Roger Hohl. The multi-national team is pursuing the goal of ensuring that the new version of the Seastar will make Dornier the leading provider in the aero-marine sector. The two-engine aircraft offers space for up to twelve people and has a maximum speed of 300 km/h with a range of 1,600 km.
