Engineering Director: Adam Wright patented inverted wing design to dive, and Dragon uses a patent-pending quad copter design. DeepFlight sub- marines have been used for science and exploration, and the company is now preparing to offer DeepFlight dive experiences to resort guests at various locations around the world.

DeepFlight has completely rede- signed the concept of a personal submarine through its innovative use of composite materials, and by applying the principles and dynam- ics of ? ight underwater. The use of composites has allowed the company to build submarines that are lighter weight than all conventional subma- rines, enabling easy beach and shore launches. The ? ight characteristics ensure that DeepFlight submarines offer greater speed, longer range and unprecedented maneuverability. Ad- ditionally, all DeepFlight craft are
