PROJECT

We constructed an air cushion vehicle that was capable of carrying two passengers and of attaining speeds exceeding 5 mph. This hovercraft was able to operate on land and on bodies of water. Check the Progress section for pictures of the construction process throughout the year. The video below is in Flash format and about 7 MB in size, so please be patient as it loads.
