From the President
On a pleasant Sunday evening, a friend invited me to go hovering. It was a beautiful, late summer evening with the sun's reflection washing the river in a pastel rust. With our hovercraft gliding on air above the mirror-like surface, we explored remote creeks, sand dunes and mud flats rarely seen by other human beings. The wildlife, in its magnificent display, barely noticed us as we breezed past. I marveled yet again at the majesty of hovering, regretting that not everyone would ever share this experience. Perhaps contacting us will be your first step to doing so. Chris Fitzgerald photo

More and more people are learning about hovercraft and developing the inevitable fascination with them. Mine began in 1959 when I saw TV coverage of the British Saunders Roe Nautical One (SRN1) hovercraft cross the English Channel in commemoration of a moment in aviation history – Bleriot's first crossing by airplane 50 years earlier.

At the time I was the youngest member of the Australian Experimental Aircraft Association, then known as the Ultralight Aircraft Association of Australia. Having always enjoyed anything to do with mechanics and, particularly, airplanes, I realized early on that owning a safe airplane was expensive. Therefore, I saw the hovercraft as a machine that offered safe, affordable flight, close to the ground. All that had to be done was to invent one that would be a practical size for the pilot and, possible, a few passengers. What I did not realize at the time was that this enthusiasm for hovercraft technology would become my passion and my life's work.

The pursuit of my goal has led me all over the world to meet many unique people, most of whom share the same spirited interest in hovercraft. It is my pleasure to now invite you inside Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. The links above will give you an inside view of our company and bring you into the world of hovercraft. As you peruse our hovercraft information, I entreat you to imagine yourself part of this unequaled realm.
