  Rescue and Military Hovercraft References

If you are considering Neoteric hovercraft for a rescue application, you will be in good company; our clientele spans more than fifty nations. As the original light hovercraft manufacturer, Neoteric has designed and manufactured hovercraft since 1976. Our craft are the only light hovercraft on the market with effective brakes, and are recognized as the industry standard for rescue hovercraft. Neoteric produces the lightest, most quiet craft in the industry, and we constantly improve our hovercraft designs and develop new models.

The following selected references actively endorse Neoteric rescue hovercraft and accessory products. The most experienced is the North Muskegon Fire Department, which has conducted more than 170 rescue missions in the hovercraft they built in 1984 from a Neoteric hovercraft kit.
