ALBIERO, Daniel et al. Development of low-cost airboats for family farming. Rev. Ciênc. Agron. [online]. 2016, vol.47, n.4, pp.793-804. ISSN 1806-6690.

The principal means of transportation for the riverside populations of the Amazon are the rivers. In that area, one big problem is the available type of transportation: if the boats are modern, they are costly; if they are more rustic, they are unsafe and inefficient. The aim of this study was to propose an airboat of low-cost acquisition and maintenance, and which can be built and operated safely by the riverside populations themselves. Design spiral methodology was used in the ship design. As a result, a conceptual design for the airboat and possible load simulations were obtained, together with completion of the technical feasibility of the vessel and low manufacturing costs.
