|We are proud to offer the UH-19XRW Hoverwing® ground-effect hovercraft for recreational, industrial, commercial and military applications. The Hoverwing®, designed as a high performance hovercraft, is unique because of the ability to add wings for flight in ground-effect. No pilot license is required and the craft is registered as a boat.
2 Meter Cruising Altitude
Flying in ground-effect enables you to clear obstacles and fly over rough water at speeds in excess of 75 mph. Cruise altitude is 1 meter (3 feet) to 2 meters (6 feet) and the craft can jump up to 7 meters (20+ feet) to clear large obstacles.
Smooth lines, excellent aerodynamics and our high efficiency drive system keep the noise inside and outside the cockpit lower than any manufactured hovercraft available. Cockpit noise is further reduced by enclosing and insulating the engine. It's normal to hold a conversation with others in the craft while cruising at 50 mph.
Removing the wings from the Hoverwing® takes just 10 minutes. With the wings removed the Hoverwing® converts into Sport mode, a sleek high performance hovercraft, able to carry 4 to 6 passengers into areas that can't be reached with any other vehicle. The Hoverwing® cockpit can be configured in many different ways to accommodate your passengers or equipment needs.
High quality construction
The 19XRW is not manufactured from fiberglass or HDPE. We manufacture our hulls from Kevlar & carbon fiber over a foam core using the latest in composites technology. This construction method helps us achieve a lightweight high strength structure that is perfectly suited for commercial operations over the most difficult terrain. The foam core provides 3,500 pounds of positive floatation making the craft un-sinkable. Kevlar & carbon fiber skins are impact resistant and will hold up in the toughest operating conditions including extreme cold and heat. Why we don't use fiberglass or HDPE?
The enclosed cabin can be climate controlled for luxurious comfort in extremely hot and cold conditions. This is truly a four season vehicle. Gull wing doors make entry into the cockpit easy. The doors are easily removable for warm weather operations.
This is a first class hovercraft for those who want to travel in style. Plush upholstery lines the inside of the cockpit and can be tailored to meet each customer’s specific taste. Seating is extremely comfortable for the pilot and passengers. High end audio systems, DVD players, chart plotting GPS and radar are just a few of the options we offer. Each craft is custom built to meet your specific requirements and detailed to be your very own “one of a kind” hovercraft.
All craft include level 1 operator training at our facility in Rockford IL USA free of charge. Advanced training is also available at our facility or on site.
