U.K.'s Hybrid Air Vehicles Begins Re-assembling Large Airship
The U.K.’s Hybrid Air Vehicles Ltd. (HAV) has begun reassembling a large airship acquired from the U.S. Army, following cancellation of the Northrop Grumman-led Long-Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) program.
Cardington-based HAV plans to use the HAV304 hybrid airship, as a prototype and demonstrator for its planned Airlander 50 commercial heavy-lift airship. The first U.K. flight is expected by year’s end. aviationweek
