There have been devastating floods recently and these natural disasters have highlighted the crucial need for a reliable way to reach people that are stranded in challenging areas. Floods can present unique challenges to rescuers as the floodwater can quickly change from depths that accommodate boats to nearly drylands. A search and rescue (SAR) hovercraft is able to navigate any water depth to reach stranded individuals.
Our rescue hovercraft model is SAR ready, with two engines. It can easily accommodate a three-person SAR Team plus one to two additional people. Its capacity is perfectly suited to provide safe and stable emergency rescue capability in the most challenging locations.
The biggest advantage of the AR-45 SAR is its accessibility. It has virtually unlimited access to any site — from land, water, snow and ice to stony creeks, open lakes and flood zones. Additional retrieval equipment such as the baskets, cradles, emergency lighting and radar can be installed to ensure you have everything you need to perform a successful search and rescue operation.
Additional Product Features:
- An inflatable hull that creates a stable platform.
- Layout to accommodate patient transfer.
- A covered cabin that provides protection from the elements while maintaining excellent visibility.
During devastating floods, the landscape can quickly change — making it hard for boats or cars to reach stranded people quickly and safely. A hovercraft SAR vehicle can tackle any terrain, from the deepest floodwaters to debris-covered roads. Additional equipment can help ensure that you have everything you need to perform a successful SAR operation.
Air Rider Hovercraft manufactures a truly unique product. Not only do we have the quietest operation — our specialized hull and forward/reverse propeller creates a safe, steady and smooth ride.
