Airlander 10 offers powerful capability and efficiency, delivering air services across sectors.
Airlander is the world’s first full-scale hybrid aircraft, which are so called due to their combination of aerodynamic lift (as used by aeroplanes), vectored thrust (as deployed by helicopters and tilt-rotors) and aerostatic or buoyant lift from inert helium gas (as used by airships). The combination of these flight technologies into one aircraft creates a game changing capability. In simplified terms, the “free” lift of the helium gas is used to counter the aircraft’s weight, so fuel usage is focused on lifting the payload and not the aircraft’s own weight, resulting in low carbon emissions. This creates a scalable advantage and efficiency when compared to conventional rotary and fixed-wing aircraft and allows the hybrid air vehicle to provide ultra-long flight duration or economic point-to-point heavy lift.
