UH-6F Trainer

The 6F Trainer is a great project for first time builders including: students, father-son projects, school and training projects. The 6F is one of our most popular and affordable models, available in plan and kit form. It starts the beginner out easy, providing hands-on experience in woodworking, fiberglass, mechanical principles, engines, propellers, and the satisfaction of starting a project and seeing it finished.

When complete, the 6F teaches the principles of hovering - riding on a cushion of air, thrust and lift, and how to operate a craft not in touch with the ground or water. Joystick steering controls rudders for precise control. Stop the 6F by reducing power, or have fun and pull a 180 reverse thrust stop. Landing skids built into the bottom allow quick emergency stopping.

The craft will handle up to a 250 pound passenger on smooth surfaces. The craft will operate on land, ice, snow, water or any relatively smooth surface.

We designed the craft around a vertical shaft engine. These engines can be purchased from Universal Hovercraft or you may find one locally attached to a lawn mower.
