The Air/Raft is the major transportation vehicle on most worlds with high enough tech levels. 
Air/rafts rely on solid-state anti-grav modules for lift and propulsion and are also known as fliers.
- Most air/rafts are capable of reaching orbit (occupants must wear vacc suits) but the trip will take several (6 to 8) hours. An air/raft is not intended for extended spaceflight. Interface landers (spacecraft), G-carriers, ship's gigs, shuttles, and other smallcraft perform similar roles.

Common Air/Raft Features
Air/rafts commonly have the following features:
- Four independent, individually replaceable modules insure a maximum of safety, in that each provides one-quarter of the vehicle's total lift.
- A standard air/raft masses about 4 tons, and can carry a payload of about 4 tons, including the pilot and 3 passengers.
- Cruising speed is usually 100 kph, with unlimited range and endurance.
- Many air/rafts are open-topped and subject to the effects of weather and climate.
- The major drawbacks to the air/raft are its low load capacity, its relatively slow speed, and its susceptibility to weather (both the negative effects of bad weather on passengers and the slowing effects of high winds and buffeting).
- Also, most can be overloaded with passengers (a maximum of 8 can fit with minimal comfort) so long as the tonnage maximum is not exceeded.
History & Background (Dossier)
Most people are aware of the basics of operation for such vehicles. The air/raft can be dangerous to operate at high speed situations or in bad weather.
