Climbers who get into difficulty on Mount Everest could be rescued by an unmanned air ambulance. The Alpine Wasp helicopter, being developed by TGR Helicorp in Auckland, New Zealand, will begin testing in the country’s Southern Alps in April. Once in operation the aircraft will fly from a base the company is building for climbers and locals at Namche Bazar in the Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal, which includes the southern half of Everest. The pilotless craft will be able to reach an altitude of 9000 metres, unlike most helicopters,
