The company states that the airship will carry three times the weight as the biggest cargo airplanes in operation today, across thousands of miles, while consuming just a third of the fuel. Moreover, since the aircraft doesn’t need a landing strip it can transfer cargo to any location having just enough room for it to land vertically. The finished version of the craft, which is expected to be ready in the next three years, will have a top speed of 120 knots, the ability to cruise at an altitude of 18,000 [feet] with a range of 3000 nautical miles.
