Airship development projects are currently under development in various countries with vehicle types ranging from small observation platforms to very large freight carriers. There is an extensive body of historical experience with airship operations that should be used as the basis for future integration of increasingly larger and more numerous airships with fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft operations.

Potential hazard

  1. Inadequate sense-and-avoid capabilities during transit through altitudes occupied by commercial transport traffic for pilot-optional configurations.
  2. Loss of control due to low-altitude wind shear
