Instructor is always right
Carefully listen to advices of your instructor and follow the rules pointed out during the safety briefing.
HOW A HOVERCRAFT WORKS
A hovercraft has a massive propeller which allows it to move forward and at the same time draws the air under the cockpit of the machine. The bottom of hovercraft is rimmed with a rubber sleeve prevents the air from easy escape, it causes an overpressure which lifts a hovercraft few inches above the ground. As it moves on the air cushion, it can ride on any surface and overcome miner terrain unevenness. It can go on grass, field, water or snow.
Thanks to the air cushion, the hovercraft does not leave any damage to the surface. Hovercraft is maneuvered through rudders and weight shifting by a pilot. It is still in a slip, therefore it is always necessary to keep a safe distance from obstacles.
