Airship Type Certificate and more for Sale

© US-LTA
The US LTA Corporation Model 138S Airship is a small single engine airship that has been developed in the late 1980s. It was issued an official FAA Type certificate in 1990. The airship is a completely new design that uses a inverted Y configuration similar to that on the Zeppelin NT. It can be controlled with only a stick in contrast to the big wheels that are used on the Goodyear blimps. And the gondola can fit 6 people. It's a nice little airship and it is really sad that no 138S is flying today anymore. But you can change this. The Type Certificate with all Engineering Documents and a lot of Parts are on sale.
Here the complete list of what is offered:
INVITATION TO OFFER

Of course you wont get a complete airship but the foundation to start a business. If you are interested please contact me at airshipworld at gmail dot com. I can provide you with more information if you are interested.

The technology is of course not the most up to date but the standard of the 138S is more advanced than the Lightships and Goodyear Blimps that one sees flying all over the world. The Zeppelin NT is more advanced since it was designed a built a few years later.

This below is the Type Certificate of the 138S airship, and you can also look at the Detailed Specifications here

Here some videos of the Airship so that you can get an impression of it's capabilities. I personally think it's a very capable small ship.


Again if you are interested or know someone who might be interested please let me know, by sending an email to airshipworld at gmail dot com.

That’s mighty expensive! I wonder if it got sold. It would be great to read more updates on this blog. With today’s planes and other modern and faster means of transportation, there really isn’t much of a market for airships but it’s still nice to hear about quaint technologies.
