New airship ‘ready to go into commercial production’

[ January 14, 2019   //   ]

Bedfordshire-based Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) says it is ready to go into commercial production of its novel airship design, following the completion of testing of its Airlander 10 prototype. The craft can regulate its own buoyancy, avoiding the need for mooring masts and allowing it to take off and land from any suitable space, say the builders. Although the first commercial versions are expected to carry passengers from the early 2020s, the Airlander has potential as a cargo carrier, especially in regions lacking airport infrastructure.
