Fully electric aircraft under development to EASA CS-23 / FAA part 23 certification.
Designed with lower environmental impact and remoter communities in mind.
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
