#TBT: #Firefighters & #FirstResponders – Don’t miss this!

For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s fly back a year to the Neoteric Hovercraft booth at #FDIC 2017 …

Wait a minute – nothing was flying last year. That hovercraft is just … sitting there. That’s one reason it's called 'throwback' - it's a thing of the past.

Yes, that no-fly zone is history. This year you can get off to a flying start at #FDIC2018! All you have to do is visit Neoteric at outdoor booth #19203 to see a rescue hovercraft in action! This is your chance to find out first-hand why your fellow first responders in 50+ nations rely on Neoteric hovercraft – proven to be the safest, fastest vehicle for water, ice, mud, flood and swift water rescues.

And plan to hang out after the flight to board a hovercraft and check it out hands-on. This is a great opportunity for videos and pics!

(We can’t promise that the hovercraft flight you attend will take place over water, mud or ice
… but with this year’s weather, who knows?)

Put this on your priority list and don’t miss the chance to see for yourself how a hovercraft keeps you above the danger – not in it. Then come to Neoteric’s booth #19203 in the outdoor demo lot on South Street during FDIC 2018, April 26-28 In Indianapolis!

#TBT: The Neoteric Hoverlifter – “First of its kind in the world”

It’s #ThrowbackThursday and time for something big!

In 1991, as one of its many special projects, Neoteric custom designed a 5,000 lb. Hoverlifter for placing sand atop a Massachusetts cranberry farm, a grower with #OceanSpray. The Hoverlifter introduced an entirely new hovercraft construction concept utilizing aluminum tubing and fabric.

Watch the Hoverlifter on the news …

A Hoverlifter with an entirely different design and composition was also developed for #Alcoa Aluminum to move half-ton units around on the roof of a 140-acre factory. 

From Hoverlifters, to Hovering Dragons for #Disney World, to #Bubba'sHover, Neoteric has a long history of 'First of its kind in the world' special projects in hovercraft design. Read more ...

#ThrowbackThursday flies you back to 2012, when WealthTV (now known as AWE - A Wealth of Entertainment) featured Neoteric Hovercraft on its popular show Boys Toys, hosted by Emmy-nominated Jenn Barlow. 

The episode was titled "Hoosier Daddy" and the show's promo was "Talk about a rush! This one-of-a-kind amphibious vehicle will have you re-evaluating your definition of the word 'cool'."

Watch the show and see Jenn Barlow learn hands-on how to "get over the hump and fly this bad boy!"

#TBT: Documentary features Neoteric hovercraft water rescue

For #ThrowbackThursday, read what first responders said after participating in a Neoteric HoverTrek™ water rescue filmed by a documentary crew back in 2009 …

Mecosta County Sheriff's Department's Neoteric Hovercraft Rescue Team in action.
“The Neoteric craft is a very unique design. It’s able to hover in one spot, turn on a dime, move slowly in between houses (in flood rescue operations), fly backwards - this craft does things that I’ve never seen another hovercraft do.”

“I’m impressed that Neoteric hovercraft are used all over the world and I was impressed with the owner of the company, Chris, and his knowledge and many years of experience … [these are] hovercraft that have years and years of insight and testing behind them.”

“When you’re going into a situation to save someone’s life, it often means that you’re going to put yourself in danger as well. I am not going to put myself or my team or the victims at risk by going into a situation that we are not equipped for … after spending a day with Chris, I realized this guy really, really knows what he’s talking about, has put a lot of thought and care into his work and is very serious about the task at hand - to create hovercraft that are designed to go where boats and helicopters can’t go.”

“You’ve got an airboat, you’ve got a hovercraft, and you’ve got a traditional boat … I just couldn’t come up with any other vehicle that could match what a hovercraft can do. Well, not “a” hovercraft - THIS hovercraft. Caterpillar makes the best equipment. Peterbilt makes the best truck. Neoteric makes the best hovercraft.”

Now, back to the present day ...
