The Flying 19XRW Hoverwing Hovercraft - $5,200
Bored of living the high-life? Then take your cronies along for the ride in this truly unique machine. The UH-19XRW Hoverwing from Universal Hovercraft is a unique hovercraft with wings that allow it to fly up to an altitude of six feet above the earth’s surface. This “ground-effect” enables you to clear obstacles and fly over rough water for a smooth and enjoyable ride. Operating in ground-effect does not require a pilot’s license, and the craft is normally registered as a boat in most areas.
With it’s wings removed, the Hoverwing is a sleek, high performance hovercraft, able to carry 4 to 6 passengers into brand new areas that can’t be reached with any other vehicle. The Hoverwing can be configured in many different ways to accommodate passengers or equipment needs.
