F-01 The state of airship international

The airship regulations for both airworthiness and operations are currently in a state of flux. Rules for the safe construction of small airships, which have been used in the past, are clearly insufficient for the large airships currently being planned or constructed.

Rigid Airships


The Graf Zeppelin LZ-127 the most successful rigid airship.

The rigid airship contained an internal framework constructed of a lightweight but strong material providing a rigid structure within which were the lifting gas cells; machinery; fuel and living/working space. A separate cover went over the outside of the framework to provide streamlining and weatherproofing.
