Why go through the waves .... when you can Flare over them!

flarecraft ground-effect craft

Are extremely efficient winged vehicles (high lift-to-drag, low fuel consumption, low cost/seat-mile) that travel over surfaces, like water, at a limited height (half a wing span), operating (Flaring) in a zone known as "ground-effect", at high speed (100+mph). Flarecraft are not regulated by the FAA as aircraft. They are registered with the US Coast Guard as a boat.
