Rescue Hovercraft – The Industry Standard
First responders worldwide have recognized that the hovercraft
is the only rescue vehicle able to perform fast, safe rescue operations
on swift water, thin or broken ice, flood waters and snow. Because
it safely hovers 9 inches above the terrain, a hovercraft keeps the
rescue team above the danger – not in it – and gives rescuers
access to areas a boat or helicopter cannot reach.
But the Neoteric Hovertrek-Rescue is not just another rescue
hovercraft. Its unique capabilities have made it the industry
standard. Neoteric's clientele now spans 50 nations and includes
the U.S. Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security; National
Parks Services; airport Police/Fire/EMS services; and Sheriff,
Police and Fire Departments throughout the world.
The Only Rescue Hovercraft with Effective Brakes
In rescue operations, sometimes backing up is the only way out. Neoteric's
patented reverse thrust system gives the Hovertrek-Rescue the unique ability
to brake, hover in place, and back up at more than 25 mph. Neoteric is the
only hovercraft manufacturer to offer this crucial feature. Our rescue hovercraft
are also the lightest and quietest production hovercraft in the industry.
Hovercraft Rescue Equipment Options
The Hovertrek-Rescue is available with a wide array of features and rescue
equipment options including stretcher mounts, light bars, searchlights, GPS
systems, VHF marine radios, cold water immersion suits and life vests, throw
bags and wireless communication headsets. Each Hovertrek-Rescue is built
to customer specifications, and is guaranteed for its lifetime.
Free Pilot Training
Neoteric provides pilot training/certification and preventative maintenance instruction with each hovercraft. On-site flight training at our Terre Haute, IN location is free.
Counterfeit Hovercraft Warning
Hi Tech International S.r.l., Italy, counterfeited the Neoteric Hovertrekô to sell modified forgeries as Hoverescue Models 425 & 525 and Hoverguard Model 725. Industry-wide concern exists that HTI is threatening consumer safety by selling pirated hovercraft with documented mechanical problems while fraudulently claiming Neoteric's 40 years' experience. HTI has marketed their counterfeit hovercraft to rescue agencies such as Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service.
