w Leisure Hovercraft, Commercial Hovercraft, Rescue Hovercraft, Patrol Hovercraft. Hov Pod Hovercraft are manufactured for leisure, commercial, rescue and patrol hovercraft applications. New CAD design, CNC engineering, and HDPE hull manufacturing methods have resulted in faster production time to meet growing demand, and ensured shorter delivery times. The Hov Pod hovercraft design approach has won worldwide acclaim - we now manufacture more hovercraft than any other supplier. Hov Pod hovercraft are very easy and fun to drive, designed with marine safety in mind. These amphibious vehicles allow you to hover over any flat surface, including water, ice, snow, sand, mud, and grass. The New Hov Pod SPX hovercraft design is unique; Hov Pods are far stronger, more buoyant than glass fibre hovercraft models; very rugged and strong so suitable for commercial, patrol and rescue hovercraft use. New tooling and manufacturing processes have been necessary to keep up with growing demand for the Hov Pod; we now probably ship more small hovercraft than any other supplier; drive one and discover why. Hov Pod offer the new NewsFlash - Build your own Hov Pod, hulls available without engine for self build, request details of the Hov Pod SPX LM (Local Manufacture) This is a fully assembled hull waiting for you to complete the engine configuration, (not a box of bits and bolts)

43. HOVERCRAFT

http://www.solarnavigator.net/hovercraft.htm
HOVERCRAFT HOME BIOLOGY FILMS GEOGRAPHY ... SPONSORS A hovercraft , or air-cushion vehicle (ACV), is a vehicle or craft that can be supported by a cushion of air ejected downwards against a surface close below it, and can in principle travel over any relatively smooth surface, such as gently sloping land, water, or marshland, while having no substantial contact with it. The first recorded design for a vehicle which could be termed a Hovercraft was in 1716 by Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish designer, philosopher and theologian. His man-powered air cushion platform resembled an upside-down boat with a cockpit in the center and manually operated oar-like scoops to push air under the vehicle on each downward stroke. No vehicle was ever built, no doubt because it was realised that human effort could not have generated enough lift. Hovercraft troop carrier In the mid-1870s, the British engineer Sir John Isaac Thornycroft built a number of ground effect machine test models based on his idea of using air between the hull of a boat and the water to reduce drag. Although he filed a number of patents involving air-lubricated hulls in 1877, no practical applications were found. Over the years, various other people had tried various methods of using air to reduce the drag on ships. Col. Melville W. Beardsley (1913-1998), an American inventor and aeronautical engineer, along with Dr. W. Bertelsen worked on developing early ACV's in the USA.

Materials Needed
  • plastic plate film canister ballpoint pen poster putty balloons
Instructions
  • Check with an adult before you begin. To make a Hovercraft, poke a hole in the center of a plastic plate with a ballpoint pen. Poke another hole in the center of the bottom of a film canister. Put the film canister over the hole in the plate and use poster putty to stick it on. Blow up a balloon and twist the opening so that air doesn't come out. Stretch the opening of the balloon over the film canister. Make sure that the opening of the balloon lines up with the hole in the film canister. Put the Hovercraft on a smooth, flat surface, let go of the balloon and give it a flick. The Hovercraft will glide across the surface on a cushion of air. The air in the balloon has to go somewhere. So, it flows out of the balloon and goes under the plate. The layer of air under the plate takes up space so it keeps the plate and table from rubbing on each other. When objects rub against each other, they create friction. Friction drags on each object and slows it down. The Hovercraft has very little friction because it rests on air.

  • Experiment with Hovercrafts at home. Change one thing, like the size of the balloon, the kind of plate or the size of the hole in the plate. Predict what you think will happen, test it out and then

The lake and surrounding area was quite small and transition to land was between some trees and into a clearing. The only way to stop was to slot the hovercraft between some trees (with not much clearance) and then use my body weight to spin the craft 180 degrees to go backwards into the clearing on full thrust to bleed off momentum. I had to get the timing just right, otherwise the back of the craft would clout the trees as the craft rotated. It seems the director preferred my antics in the trees to the original plan!

    Hovercrafts were invented by Christopher Cockerell in 1953. The British Government soon recognized this unique transportation system and implemented the channel ferry built by Hoverlloyd . Since then, hovercrafts have found uses from the arctic to the jungle. Many more applications are still to come in both cargo transporting and passenger ferries.
    WCHi sells primarily to government agencies, such as the Coastal EPA , for scientific use in estuary environments but also to commercial ventures operating tourist or transport businesses.
    WCHi hovercrafts travel over water, land, mud flats, inter-tidal areas, swamps, rivers, rapids, snow, ice, and many other difficult terrains. Hovercrafts manufactured by West Coast Hovercraft Inc. are corrosion resistant for salt water applications. WCHi's hovercrafts are distinctive from other manufacturers' models with superior maneuverability, reliable performance, and improved safety.

    History
    The first hovercraft was invented and patented by the English inventor Christopher Cockerell, in 1952. Several inventors prior to that date had built or attempted to build vehicles based on the "ground effect" principle (the idea that trapping air between a fast moving vehicle and the ground can give extra lift and reduce drag), but these efforts were of limited success and did not use the annular air cushion that known today In the mid-1870s, the British engineer Sir John Isaac Thornycroft built a number of ground effect machine test models based on his idea of using air between the hull of a boat and the water to reduce drag. Although he filed a number of patents involving air-lubricated hulls in 1877, no practical applications were found. Over the years, various other people had tried various methods of using air to reduce the drag on ships.

Some of these details are still in development, but we hope that this gives everyone a general feel for what we are building. Frequently Asked Questions
    about Seair Hovercraft Q: What is a Hovercraft? A:
    A Hovercraft is a vehicle that travels over land or water on a cushion of pressurized air. Air is forced under the hull of the craft and is contained by a tube or "skirt" of flexible material. A pocket or "plenum" of air is formed and the resulting pressure pushes the hull of the hovercraft up and away from the surface it is sitting on. Because the friction against the bottom of the craft has been greatly reduced, less energy is required to move it over the surface. This scientific principle is known as "surface effect". The air cushion also gives you smoother ride over rough surfaces. Q: How long has Seair been making hovercraft?

  • How Its Made Videos There's a great scene in the movie "Back to the Future: Part 2" where Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is being chased by a gang of hooligans on hoverboards. In the movie, these hoverboards look like flying skateboards that have some sort of magnetic propulsion system . They don't look like conventional hovercraft at all, but the hovercraft depicted in that movie served as an inspiration to Kevin Inkster , who has invented the world's first commercial hoverboard scooter, called the Airboard The Airboard will operate just like any other hovercraft, which is basically a vehicle that is supported and propelled by a cushion of air. Developers of the Airboard say it will initially be available at theme parks later this year, but you may have already seen it. If you watched the opening ceremonies of the 2000 Summer Olympics, Inkster showed off his space-age looking Airboard by riding it around the Olympic stadium.
