Seeker Sight-Seer

Seabird Aviation Australia is currently investigating the feasibility of a variant of their Seeker SB7L-360 airborne observation aircraft. Designated the Sight-Seer, the Seeker variant provides a novel seating arrangement where 2 passengers are positioned in the forward seats of the helicopter-like forward cabin and the pilot positioned centrally aft. The aim is to provide the passenger with a unique and memorable experience and adventure not available from other fixed or rotary wing aircraft. Aimed at the joy-flight and tourism market and with operational cost much less than a helicopter, Seabird Aviation considers there is a market for such an aircraft worldwide. Tourism these days is all about experience. It is expected the first Sight- Seer would be used for whale –watching over Hervey Bay, Queensland Australia. Although there are no external changes there are considerable changes within the cabin. The Seeker's central instrument console is removed and the dual controls replaced with a single set of controls with side stick behind the passenger seats. Assuming engineering and regulatory issues can be overcome, it is expected the Proof of concept Sight-Seer will be operational mid 2008.
