Airships

Free flying, using lifting gas or heat.

Lindstrand USA normally builds airships, or blimps as they are commonly referred to, for a specific end use. Since the design and manufacture is carried out in house, airships of almost any size can be built to the client's requirements.

Airships are always free flying and can use either lifting gas (such as helium or hydrogen) or heating the air like a hot air balloon (thermal). Airships are more weather sensitive than aerostats, but are equally at home in the tropics as in the artic. Since airships are large they create a lot of drag and are only used when speed is not of importance.

An Airship is an excellent surveillance vehicle for the police and the military. They are also widely used for scientific research such as earth mapping, diamond hunting and mine detecting.
