Queenslander building world’s first diesel heli

A Queensland company is working to develop the world’s first diesel engine helicopter, the ABC reports.

Graeme Smith, from Delta Helicopters, says that he hopes that helicopter kits will be available for purchase by the end of the year.

The helicopter is being developed for use in rural areas by farmers, since diesel is cheaper, burns colder and is more common in the outback.
