Just curious if anyone has heard of a helicopter manufacturer creating a single seat turbine heli for aerial application? In the fixed wing world, air tractor and thrush seem to do so well with their single seats. It would interesting to see a single seat heli with a built in tank, similar to hueys with tanks in the back seat area.

This is the only one I've ever seen. It's a modified Bell 47.

Zero seat crop duster is a drone.

Crop dusting is not a job a drone can do effectively and we won't have to worry about that for quite some time.
