In today's world, air powered vehicle is newest vehicle for transportation. This vehicle is different from other terrestrial and conventional ones as it moves freely on various kind of surfaces and eliminates any contact with surface. It is supported on self-generated cushion of air. Our projects includes various calculations for thrust and lift forces as well as to study principle of working of hovercraft. Also the hover height that hovercraft hovers was calculated. It was observed that with reduction in static and dynamic frictional forces, less thrust forces was required. In this paper, we have discussed various components of project as well the software implementation part.
