#Throwback Thursday Hovercraft Video: Vintage Neoteric Hovercraft

Today is Throwback Thursday #TBT and it’s a meme especially suited to Neoteric. As the world’s original light hovercraft manufacturer, we have decades of history to share!

On this Throwback Thursday, let’s have a glimpse of Neoteric’s third decade in business. The 1980s established Neoteric Hovercraft as a global entity as we gained customers from across the world – India, China, Japan and many other nations. And intensive research and development produced several new Neoteric models, among them the LeMere and the Neova II.

The early 1980s were a precursor of our Bubba’s Hover days, as Neoteric craft gained international fame in commercial productions – they were featured in TV ads for Canada’s Labatt’s Beer, Germany’s Lord Extra Cigarettes and Brazil’s Hollywood Cigarettes.

Here’s the Labatt’s Beer commercial, filmed on Lake Isabella in California. When ordinary boats are just too ordinary for the job, it’s Neova II hovercraft to the rescue! …

When filming the Lord Extra commercial on California’s Lake Big Bear in 1983, the Neoteric hovercraft stole the show – and not much has changed since! ...

You can read the full history of Neoteric Hovercraft here.

Now it’s time to look forward and get a glimpse of what a hovercraft can add to your future! Find out how you can steal the show ...

Hovercraft: Not just a Guy Thing

You’ve already read about Michigan’s North Muskegon Fire Department featuring their Neoteric  hovercraft at a statewide Ice Rescue Conference & Education Day. Even though it received lots of media attention, you may be surprised to learn that the most extensive coverage of the event appeared on a program for women.

WOTV 4 Women is an ABC-affiliated television station in Battle Creek that bills itself as “A TV station FOR Michigan women BY Michigan women.” And Maranda, the host of the daily program, “Where You Live”, brought some female fun to the event by learning to pilot a Neoteric HoverTrek™ on ice and filming it for her show …

But this isn’t the only time hovercraft have been spotlighted by women for women. TrailBlazerGirl.com, a California-based website that “finds the most interesting gear and amazing getaways for adventurous women who love the outdoors”, has showcased Neoteric hovercraft.  

As the Oakland Press recently reported in “Sporting Michigan”, “Not too many years ago, women were left at home to take care of the kids, do the shopping and have a warm meal on the table when dad came home from a day of ice fishing, bird hunting, or sitting in a deer stand. Times have changed. These days, more and more women are learning to experience all the outdoors has to offer.”

Those days are gone, so get in gear, gals – take Maranda’s advice and “Try Something New”. There’s no better way to experience the outdoors than on a hovercraft! 

You get in gear, too, guys – give your lady a real adventure with a hovercraft Test Flight or Flight Training Course.

But be forewarned, fellas … here’s a slightly X-rated comment left on our Facebook page by an adventurous woman named Donita after her first ride on a Neoteric hovercraft …

That was better than sex!”

Custom-built Hovercraft Garage

So where do you park a hovercraft? One of our customers in Sweden has the perfect answer –
a custom-built hovergarage …

His hovergarage is complete with ramps and front and back doors for easy fly-through. You could save some money on the double doors, though, since the Neoteric craft’s reverse thrust lets it fly backward out of the garage.

But our customers don’t just build hovergarages – many of them build their actual hovercraft from a Neoteric Partially-Assembled Hovercraft Kit. Not only does a DIY hovercraft kit save you money, it gives you a great project to enjoy with friends & family.

And don’t think this is just a hobbyist activity; we have rescue and commercial customers who built their own hovercraft from kits. Here are just a couple of examples …

Walt Sitz of Oregon built his rescue HoverTrek™ from a kit so he can use it to help others. He and his aircraft business, Eagle Wings, Inc., belong to Crisis Response International, a non-profit organization that provides rescue and relief support to humanitarian missions worldwide …

The Winous Point Shooting Club in Ohio built their commercial hovercraft from a Neoteric kit. Winous Point is the oldest duck hunting club in America, and they use it to transport hunters over water, mud, sand and thin ice to suitable hunting spots ...

You can learn more about what’s involved in building a hovercraft from a kit, and see step-by-step photo galleries in the Neoteric Hovercraft HoverGarage.

So, get out your tools!  It’s a do-it-yourselfer’s dream come true … you can build your own hovercraft and build your own hovergarage to house it!
