It’s still closer to the drawing board than reality, but airships for cargo are on their way. In an interview with the founder of Aeroscraft, we discover what the benefits are: vertical take-off and landing increases network scope; there is less fuel consumption than a freighter; plus the ability to move containers means that they would be useful for point-to-point delivery in rural or under-developed regions, with insufficient infrastructure – and good for the project cargo industry. An interesting look at what the future may hold.
