For our April lecture we are pleased to welcome Chris Daniels of Hybrid Air Vehicles Limited, the British owned manufacturer of the Airlander range of aircraft. Chris will describe the development and design of the Airlander, the largest, most innovative and greenest aircraft in the world today. He will explain how Airlander combines aerostatics, aerodynamics and vectored thrust to provide unparalleled flexibility, capability, fuel economy and safety. Chris will also discuss the market opportunities and potential market size of Airlander; and complete his lecture by describing Hybrid Air Vehicles’ commitment to projects that aim to help inspire younger generations.

Airlander 10 successfully completed its first flight on 17 August 2016. All objectives of the planned flight were accomplished and the aircraft returned to its masting site at Cardington Airfield in Bedfordshire.
