Tornado was conceived in the current of the Nineties per Jean-Charles SABOUREUX of club AERO-LOIRE. It is an apparatus which can be used for the pleasure or the competition.
Before drawing this apparatus, Jean-Charles SABOUREUX had built P20 de Gabriel VERNIER, whose plans had been published in 1986 in the review Système D.
The plans of Tornado are diffused here according to the wish of its originator, who always wished the broadest distribution of those. By respect for its work, we thank you for making any regular commercial practice of it.
You will find here two bundles of plans for Tornado: the “original” version of the aircraft, and lengthened a version known as “Pointed Tornado”. One of the bundles being more precise than the other, we advise you to download both and to refer to you to one or the other following your needs.

We could not be held responsible for the misuse or the failure of a hovercraft built starting from these plans!
Be careful! In particular, NEVER put on the way the engine without the protective grille which must be fixed firmly in front of the propeller. IT THERE A DANGER OF DEATH. Keep in mind as well as in the event of rupture, the blades of the propeller leave forwards. They must imperatively be stopped by the protective grille.
Do not invent anything! A machine with air cushion is not simple to conceive and develop. While following these plans scrupulously, you will obtain a functional machine, and your efforts will be rewarded. Free with you then to proceed to modifications or attempts at improvement…
