Air Trek 140

Designed by Derek Jones of Jones, Kirwan and Associates for use in arctic conditions, this utility hovercraft carries up to 16 passengers or freight weighing up to 1360 kg (3000 lbs).  The main structure is built in marine grade aluminum and is stressed to operate at 60 kph or about 35 mph in .9m (3 ft) seas.

It was developed about 1983-84 and used a unique power distribution system. A Caterpillar 3208 360 hp diesel engine drove via toothed belt a 6-bladed, fixed pitch ducted propeller.  It also drove via an Eaton Hydrostatic drive system, a pair of centrifugal lift fans.
