RED AIRSHIP RISING
An airship designed in the U.S. by former Russian lighter-than-air experts has received type certification from the FAA's Los Angeles Aircraft Office. The Aeros 40B nonrigid lighter-than-air vehicle is designed to carry advertising, surveillance systems or TV broadcasting equipment. With a length of 143 ft. and a gas volume of 88,500 cu. ft., it can carry a pilot and four passengers, according to Fred Edworthy, president of AerosFlightCam, a company subsidiary.
