Fight characteristics:

This craft was designed for commercial such as taxi services, freight hauling rescue or reconnaissance. The craft will handle up to 6 passengers. The extra payload capability would allow for passenger/payload combinations while staying within the USCG 6-pack requirements.

The craft is made from Polyiso foam, marine plywood and fiberglass. Polyiso foam is the best quality core material available and is used extensively in aircraft wing construction. The marine plywood is laminated in a layer of 6 ounce fiberglass on each side to create a high strength and permanent structure.

Seating was designed for the craft to be used in a hovercraft ride configuration. 6 passengers can comfortably fit in the cockpit.

Control system includes three vertical rudders for steering and one horizontal wing for trimming the craft. Rudders are operated with a joystick; left right moves the rudders and moving the joystick up & down operates the trim wing. A twist grip throttle on the joystick controls thrust engine rpm. The throttle has a friction lock for cruising.
