Passenger Airships

Flown in many countries, ILC’s airships provide  a high-profile advertising platform used successfully by The Lightship Group, Van Wagner Outdoor Advertising and by Zeppelin, which has a new partnership with Goodyear.  ILC has produced more than 50 airships structures since 1995 to support the advertising and tourism industries.

The  LZN07 220-foot-long airship envelope fabricated for Zeppelin is designed to interface with a semi-rigid passenger airship structure. Tight tolerances are maintained during production to assure the envelope interfaces properly with the rigid superstructure. The airship received its certification in 2001 and has operated on three continents. The new Goodyear ships  incorporate the ILC envelope structure.  Take a look at this new interactive video of the Zeppelin airship.

As part of our development of the airships for The Lightship Group, we qualified a unique translucent multi-layer film laminate envelope for internally illuminated airships.  These eye catching vehicles have operated successfully on six continents.

In 2005, under contract to the American  Blimp Corporation, ILC developed and produced a 170,000 cu. ft airship to serve as a test platform for the US Navy. This airship, referred to as the MZ-3A,  was in  operation for more than 4 years as a platform for testing of various payloads.
