About

Hybrid Air Vehicles Limited was established in 2007 and is the global leader in an emerging sector within aerospace. HAV has developed the Airlander 10 hybrid aircraft to Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7 and the market for hybrid aircraft has been independently valued at over US$46 billion across the next 20 years. Airlander provides powerful benefits across a range of applications while operating with lower emissions than other aircraft. HAV believes that Airlander technology is the future of zero-carbon aviation. Airlander’s efficiency enables it to carry large payloads for long durations, allowing defence customers to deliver integrated intelligence and commercial customers to provide a new type of low-emission travel, from “fast ferry” operations to expeditions to our world’s remote corners. Landing and taking off from any suitable flat area, Airlander’s ability to connect remote and unconnected places opens new opportunities in logistics, transport, and disaster relief.

Other products

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.
