The kiwi built “Flying Hovercraft.”
First we had the Martin Jetpack and now Rudy Heeman from Nelson has come up with a flying hovercraft.
The hovercraft is about 4 meters long, made of fibre glass and powered by a 1.8 litre engine. Its cursing speed is around 90 km/h when flying over a smooth surface like water.
The flying hovercraft isn’t an aeroplane so as long as you fly it along the ground you won’t need a licence.
Mr. Heeman’s auction says “This machine, which is classed as a boat and comes under MSA rules, can operate as a hovercraft or, when the wings and tail put on, flying machine that can travel above the water or land.”
This flying hovercraft has been listed for sale on Trademe for over NZ$27,000 and is generating quite a buzz around the internet.
