|The Model-4500 is a triple engine Hovercraft which features elegant design combined with performance.
Entrance is via a spacious rear door located between the propellers with a wide 1.25 meter central hallway. This model also features twin "gull-wing" doors on each side of the main cabin.
The cockpit has a clean modern layout which is well appointed featuring 3x colour LCD screens for engine monitoring in a overhead console. With a large colour LCD Radar/GPS screen centrally mounted in the dash panel for navigation.
In the cabin, 42 individual forward facing aircraft style seats can be fitted or up to 5 tone of cargo can be hauled, or a combination of both.
The cabin features a "split-level" design, which provides twelve forward passengers & the operator a 360 deg view.
The craft is equipped with a toilet and a place for a small galley or an on-board workshop. With ample room for passenger luggage.
The body is a one piece fiberglass foam sandwich construction with a molded upper body with a durable gelcoat finish. Major Advantages of foam sandwich construction are... superior thermal & acoustic properties with no joints or rivets to leak!
Craft maneuverability is superior due to the innovative "Ele-Rudders" & "body tilt" systems which lean the craft into the turn. Combined with independent forward/reverse thrust for slow speed maneuvering.
The skirt system is dynamically stable under adverse conditions with an impressive isolated obstacle clearance.
Engine rooms are accessible from inside of the craft.
