BENGALURU: The IT capital of India has yet another innovator making a mark. KK Jagadeesh, a trainee from Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO), a wing of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has developed an internal combustion engine powered helicopter and mini motorbike. 

Two miniature models were built with energy reduction in mind. Both devices were made using aluminium and fibre which are environment friendly, unlike the conventional plastic and steel used in bikes.   In reference to the helicopter, he said, “The experimentation will come in handy as the need to fly is increasing in the modern world,”

He wanted to devise a new concept and hence the mini portable bike was hand made. Weighing 2.1 kg only, the bike is agile and quick on the road. The new design of the bike could be applied in the automobile industry to save cost and enery.“We need to encourage initiatives of such young minds”, says T Suvarna Raju, CMD, HAL who has been the mainstay of HAL’s research and technology for many years.
