19 Sites Offer Hovercraft Plans

My list is the ultimate list of REAL sites that offer hovercraft plans. Don’t bother with any others. Most hovercraft sites suck. These don’t. A few of them offer plans for sale. A handful offer free plans.

Also, near the end of this post you’ll find a couple of sites offering RC Model hovercraft plans and a few sites I thought you might find useful.

Other Sites of Interest

David Oakes’ Hovercraft Building Diary, not plans but an excellent blow-by-blow description of building a craft using Universal Hovercraft plans: http://www.geocities.com/oakesdavid/hoverdiary.html

GoHover has a great set of links: http://www.gohover.com/hovercrafting-in-chicago/hoverlinks.html

Hovercollege has a badly designed site, and though I didn’t find plans there, they do sell skirt material for your hovercraft: http://www.hovercollege.com/Order/

ZB Hovercraft claims to have kits and plans in the works, but nothing there yet, except a cool shot of a very nice looking hovercraft: http://www.zbcreations.com/

Important Note: When searching for hovercraft plans, you will find dozens of placeholder sites in the top 300 rankings from Google. Also, there is one site that has a '.cn' domain extension that is extremely unfriendly to children, if you know what I mean, even though its URL is misleadingly titled as having to do with hovercraft plans. I hope that Google and other search engines soon remove that site from their indexes.
