Recent Developments

Over the last 30 years, small teams of engineers and businessmen have worked to develop the airship concept.  Using advances in engineering techniques, improved materials and practical innovation these groups have tested new ideas, and in many cases re-discovered concepts that have lain dormant until the materials sciences could catch up.  Occasionally larger corporations or government departments put some effort in to projects to investigate the state of the market; but shifting personnel, budgetary constraints and a lack of immediate need, have usually closed down these projects

Hybrid Airships

Hybrid Airships attempt to combine aerostatic lift, from the conventional Lighter Than Air (LTA) concept, with various Aerodynamic lift capabilities derived from the heavier-than-air industry. Hybrid airships have been proposed for many years, and there are a variety of projects that have attempted to marry the technologies together.
