How to choose this product
A hovercraft rides on an air cushion. A turbine-driven propeller pushes it forward. It does not fly, but is supported on the airflow passing beneath its rubber skirt.
Recreational models can carry a few people, while commercial versions are designed for passenger transport. Its amphibious capabilities make it suitable for military operations.
A blower maintains lift by creating an air cushion which passes beneath a flexible rubber skirt whose shape varies with the terrain. Forward movement is generated by deck propellers protected by wire cages.
How to choose
Choice will depend on intended use. Very large hovercraft serve as passenger ferries and in other commercial uses. However, there are also smaller models for private use.
