Why Hovercraft?

Meet the missing link

Nothing does the job of a hovercraft. Part boat, part helicopter, hovercraft are actually flying machines, skimming just inches above the surface - no matter the weather. Expand your business potential with hovercraft.

Rapid response

First responders safely rescue victims inaccessible by other means, quickly coordinate operations in time-sensitive situations, and gather intel during emergencies - all the while hovering above the danger, not in it.

Just for fun

A unique experience for sightseers and enthusiasts, hovercraft confidently transition from land to water, gliding on a cushion of air over tidal areas, ice, mud flats, sand dunes, shallows and marshes.

In the field

Crews safely and easily maneuver around hazards like power lines, low-hanging wires, bridges, trees, and debris. Hovercraft also function as a stable work platform with no dock required, and no running aground.

How it works

Hovercraft utilize one or more fans to create both lift and thrust, causing the craft to hover above the surface.

Lift is created by directing the fan's air under the craft, sealing it with a flexible fabric skirt.
Thrust is obtained by redirecting the fan's remaining air, propelling the craft to speeds up to 60 mph.
