hovering using just air lift, yes, it's acceleration/deceleration rates would be terrible, but if it were using magnetic levitation then it would be using electrodynamic braking just like a mag lev train uses, the timing of the drive coils is reversed so that instead of moving the vehicle forward, it acts like a brake and opposes the vehicles forward momentum.
If something is not broken, don't fix it, if it is broken, don't leave it broken.
