Plans & Kits: To Build Your Own Hovercraft
If your goal is to build your own hovercraft fit for the outdoors, make sure you have a plan to work from. Whatever your budget, getting there can be quite a project, especially if your goal is to build a craft that can go beyond the back yard :)
In fact, most hovercraft manufacturers realize that buying a ready-to-ride craft is quite an investment. Besides, building is often half the fun. So if you want a craft worthy of hovering fun, your best bet is to work from a kit, or at least a detailed plan. Included are a couple of links to free plans available online:
Free hovercraft plans (leafblower lift engine)
Hovercraft plans for free from French club Aeroglisseurs
Throw in a modest budget for a set of plans or even a kit from a hovercraft expert, and you get a professional step-by-step guide to building a homemade hovercraft.

Several hovercraft manufacturers provide their craft in kit form, and will even sell their plans if you're up for the challenge.
