SeaStryder is a revolutionary new multi-role, tandem wing, amphibious aircraft, designed to provide cross-country, amphibious & general aviation and features on-board living accommodations and generous stand-up head room.
Preliminary concepts for potential kitplane version of Stryder600
SeaStryder is unique in its utility; no other current seaplane is purpose-built to include the added value of live-aboard utility. Featuring stand-up headroom of 6 ft. 4 in., SeaStryder affords the ability to stand up on a long flight to stretch, make a sandwich or use the washroom. Similar convenience & comfort is unheard of in contemporary general aviation (non-military) seaplanes of this size.
Live-aboard utilities include a washroom/shower combo, kitchenette with food preparation counter, refrigerator, air conditioning unit, water filtration, sterilization and desalination plant (boat mode), berths for 4 people and a gas generator capable of supplying all electrical loads combined.
Patented Hydroplaning Floatwing Technology (HFT)
HFT is a combination of patented, highly integrated technological features employed by SeaStryder which together provide the most efficient and maximally utilitarian seaplane configuration to date. Centered around the patented wing design, it provides efficient hydroplaning, low-drag, efficient flight performance – ultimately improving fuel economy. It also delivers increased displacement floatation buoyancy as well as very solid lateral roll stability while at rest or at low water taxi speed, making it more stable and maneuverable over traditional seaplanes, with increased endurance.
Providing increased performance, utility and maneuverability, options for both single and twin engines are available depending on the model of SeaStryder craft.
