It wasn't possible before.
It is now.
Equitable tech that improves cost,
access, and emissions.
Seaflight's first network service connects islands and coastal communities with our remote-piloted electric wingships - sometimes called "wing in ground effect" craft.
They're a cross between a plane and a boat. They can take off and land on water, and fly at ultra-low altitude for enhanced efficiency - within a wingspan of the sea.
Ultra-efficient flight means low energy needs
Advanced sense-and-avoid technology means safe operation
Maritime regulations rather than aviation
Seaflight is accelerating the electric and equitable future of flight
Seaflight was founded on the way in to the Y Combinator Summer '22 batch. We're backed by world-class venture capital firms and the National Science Foundation. We're moving fast to develop the tech and the partnerships to make an impact with electric flight now, not 10 years from now.
The founding team
Dr. Graham Doig
Co-founder & CEO
Graham has 19 years of experience with electric mobility for both aviation and automotive applications, including two electric world speed records. He has a PhD from UNSW Sydney in ultra-low altitude "ground effect" aerodynamics, and a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Glasgow. Graham led the aerodynamics team & developed the range attribute at commercial delivery EV startup Canoo (Walmart) from its early days through to production. As a former Lockheed Martin-endowed Professor, Graham has worked with partners like NASA, Tesla, and Joby Aviation. He's authored over 90 peer-reviewed papers on aerodynamics.
Co-founder & COO
Will has over 7 years of experience building unique prototype vehicles and uncrewed aircraft, including with General Atomics Aeronautical Systems' SkyGuardian/ SeaGuardian platforms. At GA, he ran technical project management on the production effort for the world’s first Type-Certifiable UAS. He holds a Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, where he also built up the Prototype Vehicles Lab from scratch as the original project manager for a solar-electric car project. When not actively trying to bring humanity closer to Star Trek, William enjoys playing guitar and building surfboards.
Seaflight is located in Carson, California, about halfway between LAX and the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
