First flight in a Zeppelin

I’ve been in San Francisco for a couple of weeks and I had the chance to fly in the Airship Ventures Zeppelin NT there. We took off from Oakland airport and flew round the bay for an hour. It was an awesome experience and really exciting to fly in a type of aircraft that is both rare and elegant. I always had a dream, as a child, of living in an airship and this is about as close as you can get. It looks like you can do a course and learn to fly a Zeppelin with half an hour’s stick time for about €3,450. Expensive but awesome!

    Awesome! I just read a magazine article about this… I think maybe it was in Pilot Getaways? Glad to see you had a great time.

    Very cool 🙂

    Can you fly it IFR? Just position yourself above the airfield, and go down… ?
