Little modification is required. Universal Hovercraft's UHSPW can be built with 4 removable box seats and one full-length stationary seat that also serves as the lift system belt guard.
For flying in ground effect, the four box seats are removed and the pilot and passenger sit on the center seat. The pilot sits in front of the forward wing spar and passengers just behind. Flight controls consist of two movable rudders and a large elevator. A joystick gives precise control through a simple cable steering system that is designed for easy pre-flight inspections.
Calm winds are ideal for the most enjoyable flying. Open the throttle and hold a slight backpressure on the stick. When the air speed indicator shows 55 mph pull back a little more. The nose begins to rise and the water starts to fall away. It feels like you are 10 feet high when the bottom of the craft is only 1 to 4 feet above the surface. Reduce power to maintain the minimum flying speed 55 - 60 mph and try some gentle turns.
A small force on the stick left or right results in a bank angle and gentle turn. Fly over waves and across land without noticing any change in the smooth ride. Landing is very easy because your runway is always underneath you. You don't have to line up on the centerline, just reduce power, level the wings and you are down. Pull right out of the water and park on land.

So here we are, skimming over the bright blue Mississippi on a flawless summer afternoon--the river broad, the sun taking on a tinge of gold as it settles toward the green canopy of the Iowa shore. We're doing about 50 mph, smooth as melted butter, when I realize that we're headed straight for a low island covered in 4-ft. The guy at the controls, a year-old race driver named Bill Zang, has no intention of turning away. In fact, he opens the throttle.
