REGENT’s seaglider is an all-electric hydrofoiling wing-in-ground (WIG) vehicle for high-speed, low-cost maritime mobility. Seagliders fly within a half-wingspan of the water’s surface in an aerodynamic regime called “ground effect” which doubles the range compared to electric aircraft due to increased flight efficiency and decreased reserve fuel requirements.
