Note and photos from the well-known seaplane pilot Jean Jacques Lörtscher about his flying experience with Flywhale......
Flywhale Aircraft (now UNIPLANES GmbH), a small aircraft company located in Doetlingen, northern Germany, was founded in 2012 by Elke and Helmut Rind.
Mr. Rind began developing the first prototype of flywhale in his own workshop in 2007. It was presented at AERO 2012. In the following years, he and his small team started developing the second prototype. After much research and extensive tests, the second prototype was successfully completed in 2015.
The current version "Flywhale FW02-650 ” is based on the second prototype. It is a modern flying boat, constructed with lightweight composite material, according to the latest technical engineering and equipped with powerful sport engine and three-bladed constant speed propeller. Currently, we are the only manufacturer of ultralight amphibious aircraft in Germany.
The Flywhale FW02-650 provides high fun factor for every adventurer.
In addition, due to its compact form, high aerodynamic quality and high safety factor, it´s also suitable for the use in emergency services, coastal protection, etc.
