Luminati Aerospace unveils solar electric and amphibious aircraft

On Friday, June 10th, Luminati Aerospace will be revealing the first aircraft to be designed and built at the historic Calverton air base since Grumman ceased manufacturing some 23 years ago. The Solar Electric powered V0-SubStrata will be unveiled with flight demonstrations to follow. Grumman and other historic aircraft created on Long Island will be on flight display. There will be a dedication and speeches from Andrew Parton, Executive Director of the Cradle of Aviation Museum, Jeff Clyman, CEO & President of the American Air Power Museum, Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter, Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone, Congressional candidate and Retired USMC LT Col David "Bull" Gurfein, Kevin Law, President and CEO of the Long Island Association as well as Daniel Preston, founder and CEO at Luminati.

Those who live on Long Island or have followed the Tech news may have heard about Luminati Aerospace. Over the past year, inventor & engineer Preston has attracted a literal dream team of scientists, engineers and aerodynamicists from all corners of the aviation industry to the former Grumman Naval Base at Calverton on Long Island.

Luminati was created to set a new state of the art in aircraft manufacturing. The team at Luminati is focused on perpetual, solar electric flight in the Stratosphere as a platform for commercial internet and government ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) applications. Alongside their cutting edge design and production technology, Luminati has also formed a joint venture with SeaMax America, led by local entrepreneur and aviator Richard Rofe. This venture aims to take advantage of the state of the art facilities and in house expertise of the Luminati team to bring large scale manufacturing of SeaMax Light Sport Amphibious aircraft to Long Island (with the added benefit of creating numerous aerospace jobs). Rofe's SeaMax was awarded 'Best Light Sport Aircraft' at the prestigious Sun'n'Fun airshow.
