The safety of passengers is critical for any airport; adequate search and rescue provision can pose a problem for many airports surrounded by water and mud. In the event of an aircraft incident out at sea, a hovercraft will provide the only rescue solution for an airport surrounded by difficult terrain.

 

hovercraft offer high-speed reaction times in emergencies, bringing down crucial response times for airport rescue teams. These unique craft will travel over the concrete aircraft parking area or grass, as easily as the mud, sand or water surrounding the airport. Hovercraft have no need for additional infrastructure; they can be parked on concrete as close to the main runway as possible and be ready for high-speed take-off at any moment.
