It was a case of G'day Czech-mates at the show on Tuesday as Australian and eastern European companies announced a joint venture.

Australia-based Seabird Aviation and Czech manufacturer Evektor Aerotechnik inked a strategic alliance and formed a company Evektor-Seabird in Australia.

The company will design and manufacture the multi-role utility Seeker SB7L-360.

Evektor (Hall 1 E/37) with a tradition of more than 30 years aircraft manufacturing also makes and sells the multi-purpose Raven 257, a model of which can be seen at the stand.
