How high can the airships fly?

Our airships normally operate at around 1,500 to 3,000 feet. We can, however, go up to 8,000 but the payload is reduced.

How fast does the airship go?

We normally cruise around 30 to 50 mph., but we can go up to 70 mph (or faster, if we have a tailwind!).

Fuel Consumption

While cruising at 30 knots, the Skyship consumes 8 gallons (48 lbs.) of fuel per hour. During a week of operations, the Skyship consumes less fuel than a 767 uses to simply move away from it's gate to a runway!!
