A kit-built, turbine-powered, two-seat helicopter has been designed and tested by HeloWerks Co., according to President Tony Pena.
“People say they want a small two-seat helicopter powered by an inexpensive turbine engine for reliability, and that perfectly describes our WASP helicopter kit,” said Pena.
During flight testing, the turbine engine produced more than enough power to hover with 1,200 pounds of helicopter, crew, full fuel and 200 pounds of steel test weights.
Pena hopes to sell kits in phases to make it more affordable and to develop a quick-build option at the factory for kit-builders.
