Parasailing, wings mounted on skier’s backs and flying tubes have all aimed to get water crafts to lift off the water’s surface. New Zealand inventor Rudy Heeman has built, and personally flown, the first airborne hovercraft.
No license needed. Life insurance? Maybe.
It flies best about four feet off the water and can reach speeds of 60 mph.
The design and testing will be complete in a matter of weeks, with production soon to follow. Stay tuned for updates!
