China Best Products Wing in Ground Effect Craft

Names of WIGs:


WIGs will fill a niche between expensive aircraft and slow ships.

How wing-in-ground effect vehicles are different from hovercraft and aircraft.

WIG vehicles and hovercraft are both members of the family of ground effect vehicles (GEV). A WIG vehicle rides on a dynamic air cushion, created by its own forward movement, and generates lift by forward speed. A hovercraft has fans that continuously blow up a static air cushion. Once a WIG vehicle goes beyond the maximum ground effect height, it is considered an aircraft.


WIG vehicles can operate over, and take off from, water (large lakes, river deltas, sheltered coastal areas, archipelagos, sheltered seas) and flat surfaces of the earth such as shallows and wetlands, ice and snow. Therefore, no matter where you go in a WIG vehicle, the landing area is always directly below you. Additionally, it is estimated that WIG speeds will be 2-7 times higher than ships and operating costs 1/3-1/5 that of conventional airlines i.e. no need for a pressurized cabin, more fuel efficient etc.

Advantages for military applications include low radar and low infrared signatures, difficult to detect on satellites, fast troop deployment and the ability to operate from land or sea. WIGs do not require complex infrastructures; just a smooth beach or jetty. WIGs will be able to carry passengers or cargo to places where neither ships or planes have gone before.
