The Viking 12 by Vanair is a high-performance and exceptionally rugged medium commercial hovercraft that is capable of carrying 12 passengers and one crew member in all weather and in great comfort. This hovercraft would be ideal for water taxi, search and rescue and disaster event command and control center in water-logged or marginal terrain.
