Solent Express on sea trials 11/04/07

The most recent hovercraft constructed by Hoverwork on Bembridge Harbour left today to commence sea trials in the Solent prior to entering commercial service once MCA have issued their safety certificate:
The following from the Hovertravel site: "The craft will be based at Ryde during the trials and there will be frequent runs to the sea to test all systems, confirm handling and manoeuvring characteristics, work through safety procedures and ensure all crew are trained. Trials are likely to take 2 to 4 weeks and will be followed by the issue of a safety certificate by the Maritime Coastguard Agency, once they are satisfied with preparation"
