You will find "Hovercraft" under several other names like surface skimmer,
skimmer, air cushion vehicles or ground effect vehicle - the basic
technical approach is the same.
A hovercraft is a vehicle which is suspended
upon a cushion of air. The cushion of air is generated by a fan which
is attached to an engine which is attached to the hovercraft. The
cushion of air is contained by a flexible sleeve called a 'skirt' that
is attached around the perimeter of the craft to hold the air under the
craft and thus upon an air cushion. The craft is then propelled by
whatever means is necessary to carry it forward. A majority of craft
simply utilize a ducted fan or a propeller attached to a small 2 or 4 cycle
engine. Be assured that pretty much every mode of propulsion known to man has already been tried from jet engines to sails.
