Airlander Mods

Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) has developed two enhancements for its Airlander 10 ahead of the aircraft resuming flight testing. An all-new auxiliary landing system designed to enable the aircraft to land at a greater range of angles features two pilot-deployed 3m (10ft) airbags on each side of the aircraft to offer enhanced protection to the cabin and flight deck. It will be deployed on most landings during flight testing. HAV has also developed an integrated tracked vehicle and mooring mast to make it easier to control and push back the Airlander when manoeuvring it around the airfield.
