Quick Projects - Hovercraft

Hovercrafts utilize pressurized air to form a cushion between the craft and the ground, reducing friction and allowing for some amazing feats! You can build your own hovercraft model at home using some basic items that you can likely find around the house. You’ll learn about energy, lift, drag, friction, thrust, and gravity as you explore this lesson.

Watch this video to learn how to build your very own hovercraft! Using easy to source materials you’ll be amazed at how well this craft maneuvers across smooth surfaces. Let us know how your hovercraft works by sending the Education team an email showcasing your results! Education@modelaircraft.org
