The Flying Hovercraft

The Flying Hovercraft soars up to 70 mph in the air with the help of built-in wings as it flies over land and water. A 130-hp twin-cylinder engine drives its 60" wood-carbon composite thrust propeller. At the same time, a 34" lift fan spins at 1,100 rpm and inflates its durable nylon skirt for hovering. Simply stated, it is fast and powerful. Its wings and horizontal elevator allow pilots to easily jump over water- or land-based barriers up to 20'-high. While operating in freshwater or saltwater and up to 30% inclines over sand, mud, grass, swamp, desert, ice, and snow. Three vertical rudders and the elevation are controlled by a joystick, forward speed is controlled by a twist friction-lock throttle, and the lift fan used for hovering is controlled by a variable drive system. Lowering the lift fan's RPMs provides braking; the craft lands on composite Kevlar landing skids.
