Hovercraft take you places unreachable by other means

There is no vehicle comparable to a hovercraft. Imagine taking off for a day on the water with family and friends without the need for a boat ramp. Confidently, you fly just inches above the surface, gliding over the water to explore shallows, marshes, sand bars and mud flats, without leaving a footprint. Consider having the potential to rescue a victim who has fallen through the ice, without becoming a victim yourself. Your perception of work and play will be forever changed. These are but a small sample of the versatility and usefulness of these amazing vehicles. Other uses include:

  • Safe flood and swift water rescue
  • Environmental sampling in hard-to-reach areas
  • Spraying shallows for mosquito and weed control
  • Delivering military personnel at low tide for surveillance operations
  • Transport in environmentally sensitive areas where habitat, erosion and soil compaction are a concern
  • Wildlife conservation and research
  • Fishing anywhere - including ice fishing
  • Dive recovery operations
  • Retrieving birds from tailings ponds at mining sites
  • Water management
  • Port authority, drug enforcement


Hovercraft are crowd pleasers at entertainment venues.

HOVERCRAFT TRAINING CENTERS Make no mistake: a hovercraft is a flying machine. Floating nine inches above the surface, it requires a skilled pilot at the controls. And for those who are trained by HTC pilots, the most experienced in the industry, the result is a pilot capable of capitalizing on the hovercraft's true potential, yielding an array of advantages for recreational, rescue, military and commercial applications.
