The new Dornier Seawings GmbH connects the legacy of the legendary Dornier-Werke and their many years of experience in aircraft design, development and production with new technologies and systems in the amphibious aircraft "Dornier Seastar CD2".
At the time of its initial certification in 1991, the Seastar was the biggest composite aircraft in series production, produced in classical wet lay-up, a technology which requires great knowledge and experience. Since the relaunch of the project in early 2014, up to 4 Kasaero specialists support Dornier Seawings with our comprehensive knowledge in aircraft design and mold design, composite technology and production technology.
The demand for small jet engines to be utilized in gliders and motor gliders increases steadily. The engines are adventageous in various situations, wether to bridge the distance between two thermals or to ensure a safe return to the airfield. The turbines themselves are usually based on ones from the field of model building, but these are often not powerful enough.
Congratulations to Professor Voit-Nitschmann and his team of the University of Stuttgart for setting several world records in electrically powered flight. With e-Genius they have once again demonstrated to have built the most capable electrically powered aircraft which currently is out there.
After the successes in the NASA Green flight Challenge in 2011 and the Green Speed Cup in 2013, where the previous and now improved world record for the furthest flight of an electrically powered aircraft was set, the team has yet again demonstrated the outstanding capabilities of e-Genius.
As of now, Dipl.-Ing. Li Shiyuan will support us in all issues of the engineering.
Mr Li graduated from the University of Aeronautics and Astronautics with a B.Sc. in Aircraft Manufacture and studied Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Stuttgart with the major fields of study lightweight design, composites and aerodynamics.
Already during his studies, Mr Li gathered valuable experience in aircraft production and composite technology through his work at the electric aircraft project e-Genius and improved his knowledge with his project thesis and his diploma thesis on the aerodynamic design and the structural design of a wing for an UAV.
E-mobility also enters aviation. The usage of electric motors for aircraft propulsion opens possibilities for completely new aircraft concepts due to the low weight of these machines.
Concepts like distributed propulsion become feasible. This leads to configurations where the propeller is not necessarily in the field of view of the pilot at the nose of the aircraft. See e.g. University of Stuttgart electric aircraft e-Genius: e-Genius at IFB.
