Hawkes Ocean Technologies said that Dietrich Mateschitz, cofounder of the energy drink company Red Bull, ordered a DeepFlight Super Falcon submersible, a two–person winged submersible craft that will be delivered to Laucala Island Resort, on Mateschitz’ private island in Fiji. “We are delighted to be building a Super Falcon submersible for Mr. Mateschitz,” said Graham Hawkes, founder of Hawkes Ocean Technologies. “It’s very fitting that the co-founder of Red Bull, a company iconic with adventure, will now be connected to sub-sea flight.”
“Positively buoyant with a fail-safe return to the surface; launchable from ship or shore; designed for comfort and 360 degree viewing from acrylic domes; and uniquely capable of sub-sea flight, Super Falcon is the culmination of all our work,” said Adam Wright, President, Hawkes Ocean Technologies.
