Abstract This paper explores the performance of a flying vehicle on a soft porous blanket at a high speed. The flying vehicle employs the basic principle of lubrication theory. An airplane can fly in air, because air is strong enough to support the airplane. The flying vehicle can also fly on the soft porous blanket if the moving body pushes air in the soft compressible porous mat. A model is established.
