Seeker Aircraft has announced that Seeker, a purpose built light observation aircraft, specifically designed and developed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, will now be available for purchase from aircraft dealer Ecoalpha Services based in Accra, Ghana.

 

This partnership marks a new expansion effort by Seeker Aircraft into Africa and the Middle East.

“Ecoalpha is well suited to represent Seeker in our efforts to expand marketing, sales and services into Sub-Saharan Africa, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and, the United Arab Emirates”, said Ed Lundeen, President of Seeker Aircraft. “Ecoalpha intends to have a mission configured Seeker aircraft in their territory for demonstration purposes and plans on establishing a services base for parts and support for fielded aircraft.

Ecoalpha seeks to expand their market offering with the addition of the very affordable Seeker aircraft for not only ISR missions but also for powerline and pipeline patrol in the energy rich African continent. Ecoalpha’s current offerings include helicopter-based services, asset management, and heavy load movement.

Dr. M.C. Vasnani, CEO of Ecoalpha, added: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to represent Seeker in Sub-Saharan Africa and in the Middle East as we believe the Seeker aircraft offers an ideal, low acquisition and low operating cost, solution that can operate under austere conditions. With our background, business experience and knowledge of local markets we believe Ecoalpha can be highly successful in marketing, selling and supporting the Seeker.”
