Skirts for hovercraft

What is the purpose of the hovercraft skirts?

A hovercraft is an all-terrain vehicle (water/land) that moves on a cushion of air. This movement is done thanks to a ventilation system that sends air under pressure into the almost watertight skirts of the hovercraft, which allows it to rise. The hovercraft is then ready to glide whatever the nature of the ground: water, swamp, ice, earth etc… Propulsion is provided by a propeller.

By necessity, the skirt offers a strong resistance to abrasion, pressure…There are three main families of skirts : bag skirts, finger skirts and combined bag and finger skirts. Therefore, the best material to make hovercraft skirts is fabrics coated with rubber.
