We’re serious. This is a real hovercraft that can glide over land and water AND fly up to 50 feet off the ground with a top speed of 70 mph. Take my house, car, and my retirement fund.
This is the hovercraft that glides over land and water yet also soars in the air up to 70 mph (Note: video below claims 50 mph because it’s an older model. The current model can reach 70 mph) with the aid of integrated wings. A 130-hp twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled gasoline engine — turbocharged and fuel-injected — drives its 60″ wood/carbon composite thrust propeller while a 1,100-rpm 34″ lift fan inflates its durable vinyl-coated nylon skirt for hovering above the ground.
Operating in fresh- or saltwater and up to 30% inclines over sand, mud, grass, swamp, desert, ice, and snow, its wings and horizontal elevator enable pilots to simply hop over water- or land-based obstacles up to 20′-high unsurmountable to a typical hovercraft. A joystick controls three vertical rudders and the elevator, a twist friction-lock throttle controls forward speed, and a variable drive system controls the lift fan for hovering. Braking is provided by lowering the lift fan’s rpms; comes to rest on Kevlar composite landing skids.
