Even if you aren't interested in his services, the site is worth a visit for the information it contains about recent developments in the airship industry.

There’s much more out there but I hope this will give you a taste of the exciting future (and present) that’s in store in the world of dirigible aviation. In the meantime check out these airship related items on eBay:
