Summary of Benefits
Hoverflight Australia designed Velocity and Hoverflight hovercraft are designed to be mass produced, priced to be competitive with a similar sized boat, offer generous cabin area with 300 degree visibility, low sound levels, can operate in sea states up to force six, in white water conditions, over surf, or amongst reefs with cruise speeds up to 40 knots Departures with full load are normally from deep water, unlike most other hovercraft.
The HoverFlight Hovercraft with wings are in fact wing in ground-effect machines (WIGs) that cruise at 70 Knots 1 to 5 metres above the ocean providing high speed ocean transport over smooth or rough seas.
