Hovertrek hovercraft skirts feature an inventive quick-change system that allows the pilot to replace skirt segments in the field without the need for any tools whatsoever. New segments slide into a special slot along the craft’s edge without the need for mechanical fasteners, which enhances the Hovertrek hovercraft sleek, agile appearance.
Neoteric also incorporates advanced anti-plow technology in 20 skirt segments at the bow of the Hovertrek hovercraft as well as anti-scoop technology in 10 segments at the stern. A diaphragm in the front segments prevents them from collapsing and tucking under in the event of a plow-in; the segments stay expanded, delivering vital lift air to the front of the craft, which considerably lessens the consequences of a plow-in. An anti-scoop flap in the rear segments prevents them from filling with water while getting over hump. This reduces the power required, saving valuable time and fuel.
