The invention concerns a ground effect vehicle comprising hydrofoils or hydrofoil outer parts (18) which can pivot about a parallel line relative to the longitudinal axis of the body in order to increase the speed range when flying close the ground. In addition, the hydrofoils and the body can be provided with trailing edge flaps (19) which are articulated so as to pivot about a horizontal axis and, depending on the selected angle of incidence of the hydrofoils or hydrofoil parts, can be controlled as lift-increasing ailerons or flippers.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A ground-effect vehicle with a hull and on each side a wing having a respective outer part can be pivoted up relative to a respective inner part closer to the hull so that as a result of the pivoting a surface loading corresponding to the current speed is maintained with an optimum setting angle and where each inner wing part has rear flaps that are selectively controllable relative to a hull longitudinal axis, the wing and flaps being such that a vertical altitude change can be established without changing the hull position...
