WIGCRAFT DESIGN BLUE DOPHIN is a designer group company operating since April of 2005.
At the present time, our company has brought together an experienced team of professionals from the fields of education, business development, public safety and maritime operations, including former members of the US Coast Guard.
In May of 2007, the team toured the Simulation Unit at the Maritime Training Institute in Seward, Alaska. With safe operations of the craft being the number one priority, the team was able demo the simulation programs by piloting an oil tanker, a cruise ship and a large Coast Guard cutter to determine the best
development plan for the creation of the Custom WIG Simulation Unit. We will be working with programmers to create a proprietary simulation unit which will be operated by our partner training team. Our training program will be the only WIG simulation unit of its kind in the world. In fact, all of the craft operators from this manufacturer anywhere in the world will be required to train under our program, which will be accredited upon its approval by the US Coast Guard.
A MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) For a Workforce and Economic Development Partnership between Pacific Seaflight and the School of Career Education University of Alaska Southeast, Juneau Campus (UAS) was established which would allow to operate the training school within the University structure and would allow us to place the million dollar WIG Craft Simulator in their campus. This would be the ONLY WIG Craft Training School in the world. The design of the simulation system could be programmed in the future for any WIG craft training program. The Blue Dolphin BD-12G has passed several examinations for potential commercial use in the USA and Canada.
Based upon proven technology, updated model of the Blue Dolphin BD-12G will be manufactured to meet all requirements in compliance with the Jones Act.
With cruising speed up to 120 mile per hour they are faster than almost all other sea crafts and over short to medium distances they provide travel time comparable to helicopters and small aircrafts. Cruising above the water surface without water contact, WIG crafts provide an efficient and safe means of transportation while offering natural stealth.
100% of the structure of the craft will be manufactured within the United States through a joint manufacturing partnership utilizing the expertise of local Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic specialists that have strong track records in composites building USCG and FAA certified craft.
Currently, the development team headed by retired US Coast Guard personnel are bringing together the final elements to submit BD-12G project for US Coast Guard approval.
In addition, a flight simulation system of the craft is in development, and when completed, it will be the only WIG Craft flight simulation system in the world. In fact, all of the Blue Dolphin craft operators from this manufacturer anywhere in the world will be required to train under the program, which will be accredited upon its approval by the US Coast Guard.
Under United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) legislation, The Ground Effect Crafts are recognized universally as marine vessels for construction, insurance, operator licensing and registration requirements. Therefore, the purchase and operating costs are considerably less than traditional aircraft, while still being able to travel at a speed comparable to a light aircraft.
Flight attitude in the Blue Dolphin is extremely stable. Sea state and wave action have only a very minor effect when airborne. All Blue Dolphin vessels operate above the water up to around 50% of the wingspan. The larger the vessel, the higher the surface clearance and wave height capability.
The Blue Dolphin has a maximum water surface clearance capability of up to nine feet over the crests of 12 foot waves. A range of up to 1200 mi and a cruising speed of 120 mph is achievable.
