UP, Up And Away!


Forget the flying cars we were promised in the 50’s.  Tomorrow’s hip mode of travel will be the personal blimp.  The airship “Alberto” had its maiden voyage on October 27th.

SkYacht, creators of the craft, started developing it in 2002.

Check these specs:

  • Length: 102 feet
  • Diameter: 70 feet
  • Seats: 2
  • Weight: 4100 pounds
  • Cruise speed: 12 mph
  • Size in flight: 205,000 cubic feet
  • Size when deflated: 1,500 cubic feet

The manufacturer says the deflated blimp will fit in a 24 foot car trailer.  No word yet on pricing.
