Rescue hovercraft documentary features the Neoteric HoverTrek™

A documentary film crew traveled to the corporate headquarters of Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. to film its Rescue HoverTrek™ performing a water rescue on the Wabash River. The mock rescue was arranged by Steven Stafford of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, a long-time Neoteric customer, who coordinated the efforts of the Air Evac LifeTeam and the Sugar Creek Fire Department. The first responders involved in the filming highly endorsed Neoteric hovercraft for rescue operations:

“The Neoteric craft is a very unique design. It’s able to hover in one spot, turn on a dime, move slowly in between houses (in flood rescue operations), fly backwards - this craft does things that I’ve never seen another hovercraft do.”

“I’m impressed that Neoteric hovercraft are used all over the world and I was impressed with the owner of the company, Chris, and his knowledge and many years of experience … [these are] hovercraft that have years and years of insight and testing behind them.”

“When you’re going into a situation to save someone’s life, it often means that you’re going to put yourself in danger as well. I am not going to put myself or my team or the victims at risk by going into a situation that we are not equipped for … after spending a day with Chris, I realized this guy really, really knows what he’s talking about, has put a lot of thought and care into his work and is very serious about the task at hand - to create hovercraft that are designed to go where boats and helicopters can’t go.”

“You’ve got an airboat, you’ve got a hovercraft, and you’ve got a traditional boat … I just couldn’t come up with any other vehicle that could match what a hovercraft can do. Well, not “a” hovercraft - THIS hovercraft. Caterpillar makes the best equipment. Peterbilt makes the best truck. Neoteric makes the best hovercraft.”
