Hovercraft featured on

The Neoteric HoverTrek, official hovercraft of HTC, was recently featured on, a site that culls the web for the coolest gear and getaways for adventurous women. And what cooler vehicle for the outdoorsy man, woman, or otherwise than the buzz-vehicle of the minute: hovercraft.


“Wouldn’t it be great to zoom over land and water without changing vehicles? Well, you can with a Novertrek by Neoteric Hovercraft. A hovercraft floats on a cushion of slightly pressurized air so that you can travel easily over a variety of surfaces – land, water, mud, sand or ice. Neoteric offers different sizes and styles of hovercraft, including side-by-side seating, reverse thrust systems for braking and maneuverability, even a four-person golf cart. As they say, it’s an ‘all-in-one, all-season recreational vehicle’.”

While hovercraft still tend to be associated with male-dominated professions and recreational activities thought of as "guy stuff", some women are getting in the pilot’s seat and giving the dudes a run for their money. Donna Jackson, a deputy with the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, uses hovercraft to aid in search and rescue efforts over the highly variable terrain in and around Shreveport, Louisiana. As if often the case with our trainees, senior officers in the Parish were trained at HTC headquarters in Terre Haute, Ind. and graduated with not only the skills to fly, but the ability to pass along that knowledge and train their subordinates. After being trained by her lieutenant, Lt. Jackson has put her skills to use patrolling the Red River and rescuing citizens in distress.
