Warrior (Aero-Marine) Ltd. is a British company based in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, working on three aircraft of similar design:
  • A series of seaplane UAVs called the Gull 24, Gull 36, Gull 44 and Gull 68;
  • A scaled-up, general aviation version of it, the Centaur 2 amphibious flying boat; it is being developed as a two-seat amphibious flying boat using wing-fold capability for access to marinas and Warrior's revolutionary hull form for performance, capacity and wave handling advantages.
  • A further scaled-up general aviation 6-7 place derivative, the Centaur 6 amphibious flying boat; he wings can be actuated to fold while on the water to enable access to marina docks and yacht berths; the configuration suits turboprop and piston engines.
More info and pics on Warrior (Aero-Marine)'s website: www.warrioraero.com

A second company, Centaur Seaplane plc, has been set up for commercialisation of aircraft developed by Warrior. More information on the Centaur 2 is available either on request from Warrior or on Centaur Seaplane plc's website www.centaurseaplane.com.

More pics of the Centaur 6, whose development seems to have been halted for lack of funds:
