From Second Skies
The SSA-1881 Seagull is a not-quite-lighter-than-air aircraft. At slow speeds, it operates as a boat, cruising along the surface. Once you hit 50% throttle, the aerodynamic lift of the wings combined with the twin lifting gas cells is sufficient to allow the craft to become airborne, after which it flies a lot like an airplane, except that the weight of the central boat is too heavy to permit the craft to roll over or loop upside-down, and if you cut engines, it falls from the sky due to lack of lift, but at a slow, pleasant, safe speed.
The SSA-1881 has the following features:
- Two modes of operation: cruise along the water's surface like a speedboat, or throttle up and take to the skies.
- Capable of carrying 5 passengers (including the pilot).
- Engine sounds and textures that vary depending on speed.
- Particle effects: leaves a wake behind when being used as a speedboat.
- Ejection mechanism for unwanted passengers.
- Windows configurable to be clear or opaque.
- Three different control modes: Flight Sim, Inverted, and FPS (first person shooter) modes.
- Autoparking feature to return your aircraft to precisely the position and rotation you like it in when not in use.
