The USHovercraft Hoverport can be seen behind the latest 10 ft X 20 ft hovercraft going through initial testing on the mud flats at the International Port of Anchorage, Alaska USA. This hovercraft is using the newest variation of our close bag hovercraft skirt system, with an integrated air volume controller. The operator can quickly adjust the volume of air that is being used in the bag (controlling bag pressure) or redirect that airflow into the chamber under the hovercraft. This results in easy corrections for hovercraft height, airflow and drag for changing surfaces airflow requirements. Contact USHovercraft for information about our latest skirt system and the improvements it can add to your hovercraft.
