How to use "Hover" in context?

To "hover," according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is "[t]o remain in the air, as a helicopter or an airplane." Hovering is the result of a system being in equilibrium, or balance, between lift and weight. Lift is the force that drives an object in the air, while weight pulls the object towards the ground. Hovercraft use fans or rotors to create lift, while airplanes use wings to create lift. Hovering typically requires a counterbalance to weight, either an engine or a landing gear.

Hovering is a versatile mode of transportation.
