Neoteric Hovercraft Technology


State-of-the-art aircraft engines

The heart of any vehicle is its engine. But the hovercraft is not just any vehicle. Like all flying machines, the hovercraft requires a high power, low weight engine, but a hovercraft must also have an exceptionally durable engine to survive travel on every type of terrain.

Before any engine is deemed capable of powering the HoverTrek™, Neoteric demands that it first survive more than 50 hours of rigorous testing in unrelenting scenarios without failure of any kind. Few engines are up to this challenge. The engines that have proven themselves are the Hirth 2703 (55 hp), 3203 (65 hp) and 3701 (100 hp). These robust 2-cycle aircraft engines have a higher power-to-weight ratio than any other light aircraft engine.

Since the quest to guarantee top quality never ends at Neoteric, new engine testing is a constant endeavor. Currently very technically challenging evaluations are being conducted on a high-performance 4-cycle engine.
