Air Rider Hovercraft has many uses for both personal and commercial benefit. The hovercraft is an incredibly versatile vehicle that makes travel easy over terrain that would otherwise be nearly impossible to navigate. Explore the many applications of Air Rider Hovercraft with us:
Oil & Gas Industry
The versatility of the Air Rider AR-45 has provided the oil & gas industry tremendous advantage over traditional methods of transportation. Hovercrafts can easily traverse tailings ponds to allow safe access for work crews undertaking bird control, ongoing dike system inspections, deposit sampling procedures, pipe inspections and many more. In addition, hovercrafts are assisting oil & gas companies to locate new reserves in areas that cannot be easily reached by other vehicles. All land survey work such as this requires access to harsh terrains such as lakes, over ice, swamps, and anywhere else you may venture. Air Rider Hovercraft makes venturing through tough conditions easier by allowing you to navigate every landscape in a single vehicle.
Mining, Exploration, Wildlife Conservation & Other Industries
Mining, exploration and wildlife conservation, along with many other industries with environmental & geological survey teams, require approaching areas that may not be easily accessible through regular means of transportation. A hovercraft permits workers to reach their destination quickly, without causing too much disturbance to delicate ecosystems of natural habitats. Conservation teams are able to perform their duties efficiently and observe wildlife from a means of transport that is significantly quieter than other all-terrain vehicles. Other industries that also require a fast, quiet method of transportation are turning to the hovercraft to meet their needs.
Search & Rescue
Hovercrafts are recognized as the vehicle of choice for any search and rescue operation in areas where conventional rescue boats and vehicles cannot reach. The Air Rider 45 SAR hovercraft covers open water, fields, narrow rivers, frozen ponds and endless other situations to carry rescue personnel to and from the scene quickly and safely.
Air Rider offers an ideal solution for ice rescue, while also minimizing the risk involved. The Air Rider will not “freeze down” and can travel at high speed over ice and snow, thus providing the quickest method to rescue a victim trapped in cold and ice.
Hunting & Fishing
Air Rider Hovercraft enables hunters to enter areas they wouldn’t be able to reach without an all-terrain vehicle. Air Rider not only allows you to venture farther but also provides a shortcut in many cases that was previously not possible. For instance, many hunting lodges can be easily accessed by travelling up and down shallow rivers and streams rather than travelling purely by land.
For those who love to ice fish and can’t wait until the ice freezes, stay safe with the Air Rider Hoverhut! It doesn’t get more convenient with the Hoverhut’s removable access hatches in the floor that allows fisherman to fish right from inside the craft without feeling a breath of cold air. No matter how thin the ice may be, the Hoverhut will bring you there and back safe and warm.
If you’re looking to purchase a hovercraft for the pure enjoyment and fun of it, we don’t blame you! Air Rider Hovercraft is extremely fun and easy to use with very low maintenance and running costs. Comfortable seating for up to 5 passengers, pay load capacity of 900lbs, a heater and room for luggage makes getting to the cottage quickly and safely an enjoyable experience! With the entire family on board you can rest easy knowing that your Air Rider Hovercraft has been designed with safety and comfort as the primary concern.
