SSI Energy deployed a hovercraft pilot to Peru on the 3rd December to carry out trials, a capability demonstration and driver (pilot) training on a Griffon Hoverworks 995 hovercraft. The hovercraft was shipped from the UK and unloaded in Peru, our pilot instructor helped unload and then assemble the hovercraft on site. Our Instructor is not only the Pilot but also maintains the hovercraft during the project.  The project is a Peru Government sponsored outreach mission for local communities and due to last for the next 10 days in the Nueva Vida region.
