A hovercraft, also known as an air-cushion vehicle or ACV, is an amphibious craft capable of travelling over land, water, mud, ice, and other surfaces. Hovercraft use blowers to produce a large volume of air below the hull, or air cushion, that is slightly above atmospheric pressure.

The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it. Air Cushion Vehicles (ACVs) have been developed with either flexible skirts or having fixed side walls with flexible skirts located at the bow and stern of the craft. They have been produced in a wide range of sizes as shown in Fig.

for several fully flexible skirt hovercraft. Furthermore, this figure vividly contrasts the size difference. Early air cushion vehicles were conceived with the object of drag reduction for a marine craft. The concept of injecting lubricating air over the wetted surface was replaced by the use of a thicker air cushion.
