Description

Airlander - Hybrid Air Vehicles by Chris Daniels

Airlander takes the best of aeroplanes, helicopters and airships and combines them with the latest innovations in materials to create a truly revolutionary aircraft. The Airlander is a “hybrid” of an aeroplane and an airship – we get 40% of our lift from the aerodynamic wing shape of our aircraft, and 60% from the helium fill – it is therefore inherently more efficient than other forms of air transport. It uses the very latest fabrics to maintain its shape and is technologically years ahead of other aircraft. Airlander has flown before under a US Government programme, but is now being developed for commercial purposes, such as freight, remote access, aid distribution, advertising, surveillance, communications and luxury passenger transport.

Airlander aims to revolutionise transport and travel by:
  • Being one of the lowest carbon emissions aircraft in the world, like for like.
  • Having game-changing endurance (it can stay airborne for weeks rather than hours).
  • Providing significantly lower delivery cost for airborne freight.
  • Being able to land anywhere (water, land, desert, ice) thus opening up new point-to-point routes to previously inaccessible areas.

Groups are welcome to attend however please order a ticket per person so we can accurately determin audiance size.
