Developing ultra-efficient aerodynamic tech to accelerate electric flight

It wasn't possible before.
It is now.

Equitable tech that improves cost,
access, and emissions.

Seaflight Interisland_islandtownmod.jpg

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.

About Seaflight

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.
