Canadair was engaged in air cushion vehicle research from 1960
through to the end of the decade. The CL212 was an experimental vehicle
developed with Canadian Government support. It was a simple, low cost ACV
which utilised the semi-recirculating curtain principle.
In its final form, two Arrow Propeller Company fans, driven by
two Ford Mustang automotive engines supplied air for the cushion and also for
propulsion. The propulsion system consists of two ducts, located on each
side of the vehicle, exhausting low velocity air. Vanes are installed in the
ducts to vector the thrust for vehicle control. The vanes are connected to a
simple control stick.
