It is time of the come-back of airships. The memory of the explosion of the Zeppelin Hindenburg in 1937 seems to have erased in the memory of the public. And never have plans for the use of airships been so numerous. Especially in the freight transport or intervention in a natural environment, as in the project Flying Whales.
Three of the most popular advantages of the airship: an energy consumption and therefore reduced CO2 emissions, a much higher payload than a helicopter – up to 60 tonnes as with the Lockheed Martin aircraft – and a capacity to to land on any type of terrain. Very useful in case of emergency assistance during natural disasters
