Fully electric aircraft under development to EASA CS-23 / FAA part 23 certification.

Designed with lower environmental impact and remoter communities in mind.

SUSTAINABLE
Fully electric: zero CO2 emissions at point of use
OFF-GRID FREEDOM*
Solar panels enhance range and reduce reliance on charging infrastructure
*when using batteries as energy storage medium
FLEXIBILITY
7 seater: reconfigurable for passengers, cargo, medevac, and/or utility
ADAPTABLE
Operates from land or, with easily attachable boat-hull, from both water & land.
ENHANCED PERFORMANCE
STOL characteristics, limited aerobatics, unpaved runway capability
SAFER
Low, in-line center of gravity provides for safer handling. Enclosed fan minimizes blade-strike incidents.

CORMORANT’S BASIC PRINCIPLES

Produce a practical, multiple-role STOL electric aircraft maximizing its relevance and appeal across market segments

Deliver our mission with sustainability as its core driver

Embed our SEA design values so as to remain flexible and entrench Safety, Efficiency and Adaptability both within the design process and resultant aircraft

Do not ‘reinvent the wheel’, but improve on historic design deficits, incrementally where feasible

Use proven, certified systems and solutions wherever sensible and practicable

Avoid unnecessary complication, leave the design of ‘exotic’, revolutionary, new aerial transport platforms to those with deep pockets and stakeholders to keep convinced of their vision

Minimize reliance on ‘known unknowns’, i.e. except where necessary, do not incorporate concepts that are either under development or require standards to be developed for them – or both

Reduce risk through deferring strategic decisions to allow any ‘known unknowns’ to mature, ideally into ‘known knowns’, without impeding progress
