purpose built for surveillance and patrol operations
Designed and developed in Australia, and now operating in Australia, USA, Middle-East and Africa, the SB7L-360 series aircraft is a CASA and FAA Part 23 Normal Category Certified purpose built, rugged utility aircraft. The Seeker is now available for commercial and private use.
At a third of the operating cost of rotary wing equivalents, the Seeker provides an efficient alternative for powerline and pipeline inspection, coast watch, environment and livestock monitoring, aerial photography and security. Crew visibility is unrivalled by any other fixed-wing aircraft and is superior to many helicopters.
Seabird designed and developed the Seeker as multi-role utility aircraft for optimum effectiveness and performance in low level observation tasks. Delivering a combination of attributes not available with conventional helicopters or commercially available fixed wing aircraft, the Seeker offers an impressive and unique flying experience.
