Abstract : The air cushion vehicle or “HOVERCRAFT” is popularly known and the newest vehicle in today’s advanced transportation system. As well-being new, this vehicle is different from other conventional, terrestrial of this kind. In this research we made an attempt to make an indigenous hovercraft vehicle that has a unique structural design. That uses the single directional control as rudder. Major consideration is that the hovercraft should weigh less than the conventional crafts. They are usually supported by fans that force air down under the vehicle to create lift, Air propellers, Water propellers or Water jets usually provide forward propulsion. This design uses a single duct motor for both the lift and thrust moments. The duct motor attains the Mach thrust. The air is continuously forced under the vehicle by a fan, generating the cushion that greatly reduces friction between the moving vehicle and surface. The air is passed through ducts and injected at the periphery of the vehicle in downward and inward direction. The air from the duct is made to flow to the periphery using an L-BEND this produces a downward force. This type of vehicle can equally ride over ice, water, marsh or relatively level land.
