First flight of the Dornier Seastar with ACM Aerospace on board

Memmingen / Oberpfaffenhofen - Germany, 3rd April 2020 – The successful maiden flight of the amphibian aircraft, the Dornier Seastar, with the prototype SN1003 took place just a few days ago. Following several years of development, parts from ACM Aerospace were on board for the first time, including cabin and cockpit components.

 It's a real success story: The maiden flight of the new Dornier Seastar was finally accomplished on March 28th, 2020 following several years of development. The flight lasted around 31 minutes and was operated with the prototype SN1003.

The international ACM supplier, developed and manufactured , the cockpit panels and other interior parts of this aircraft. The cabin design was also developed by the engineers of ACM Aerospace's research and development department. Head test pilot Wolfram Cornelius says: “The modern avionics system is an impressive reflection of the state-of-the-art character of the cockpit design and serves as the foundation for further development of the aircraft”.

The development period spanned more than two years and was dominated by special challenges. More than 30 components were developed, certified and manufactured. The design of the flight compartment interior is largely influenced by the primary structure as well as the instruments installed in the cockpit. ACM Aerospace has succeeded in creating a modern, lightweight and efficient design in line with the highest demands of aviation under these circumstances. “We are filled with pride to be on board for such a prestigious Dornier project. The cockpit and cabin design in particular are essential for the operational and commercial success of an aircraft. This is why it is especially important that a significant milestone is set here.” says Roger Hohl, Managing Director of ACM Aerospace.
