Turbine helicopter

A turbine helicopter is a one that derives its motive power from a turboshaft engine fuelled by kerosene, as do most modern full size helicopters.

Model turbine helicopters are still somewhat of a rarity, but the turbines and kits are now more easily available. As well as dedicated turbine airframes, conversions are available to fit a turbine into airframes not intended for turbine usage.

Turbine operation requires extra safety precautions because of the high temperatures and energy contained in a running engine.
