Ultimate Hoverwing 18spw

Can’t decide between black and brown shoes as a career accessory? A grounded aviator with a limited budget and a yard not big enough to put in your own runway?

This just may be the answer.

Kit built, 75 mph, max altitude about 10 feet, or hovers at 8 inches. Seats 4 (but only 2 if you’re going to fly)…so you can bring your GIB friends along for the ride, too.

From Universal Hovercraft, here’s the UH-18SPW Hoverwingâ„¢

What are you waiting for? 275 hours of work is all that separates you from ground effect adventure!

Of course, for those stuck between the surface navy and the Silent Serviceâ„¢, there’s a solution for you, too!
