Oman Air, the Sultanate of Oman's national airline, was founded in 1993 and is based at Muscat International Airport, from where it operates international flights to 50 destinations worldwide, mainly in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. The airline operates a fleet of 40 aircraft, mainly comprising Airbus A330s and Boeing 737s, and is gradually phasing in the 787 Dreamliner.

DIAMOND AIRCRAFT TO BUILD DORNIER SEASTAR
Friday, January 29, 2016

LONDON, Ontario, Canada - Dornier Seawings GmbH has selected Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc (Canada) to produce the Seastar amphibious aircraft’s all composite airframe. In addition to the corrosion-free airframe, the Seastar will feature a modern glass cockpit, retractable tri-cycle landing gear and twin centerline mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 turboprop engines.

"We’re excited to be producing the airframe for the Dornier Seastar" said Peter Maurer, President and CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries (Canada). "It is a sophisticated and substantial aircraft with an MTOW of over 10,000 lbs and capacity to carry 2 crew plus up to 12 passengers. While the large fuselage and one piece wing are bigger than the typical Diamond components, our production of similarly sized structures for the D-JET program and other contracts, gives us the experience and ability to complete this challenging task."

Although the Seastar is entirely different than any Diamond model, there are significant similarities in design philosophy and production methods that make this an excellent fit. Both Diamond and Seastar aircraft designs feature no life limit composite airframes with failsafe and redundant design concepts, both are produced using low temperature, out-of-autoclave curing processes for better field reparability and both take a similar overall design approach to safety. We are confident that the Seastar will be a great success and are pleased to be playing a role in its entry to the market worldwide."

The initial contract, for the manufacture of the first ten shipsets, with options for subsequent units, includes significant tooling work to ready the Seastar for higher volume production.

The first flightworthy components are in production, with delivery of the first airframe to the Dornier Seawings facilities in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, for final assembly and completion, scheduled for Q2 2016.
