Del Mar DHT-2

09/30/2009. The major new feature of the second generation DHT-2 pilot training system was the use of a gas-turbine powerplant in the helicopter, while it used electric motors for the air-cushion platform. Mounted here is the prototype DH-2A N3349G (converted from DH-1A prototype c/n 1) fitted with a 65 shp Solar T62-T-2 gas-turbine engine.
