This family of Airships is designed in respond to a growing demand for affordable and safe aerial sightseeing services. The electric driven airships with the multiple motors located away from the passengers are the perfect tools for the sky travel. Low noise and vibration, large windows, smooth flight, low or zero carbon footprint, cost effective operation, attractive appearance and great advertising potentials – are promising the bright future for these blimps of new generation. Each model equipped by onboard bar, galley and unique rear observation deck with the glass floor and the floor-to-ceiling windows. We have developed two sizes – Atlas-06 and Atlas-11. Each size can be equipped either by fully electric propulsion driven by replaceable batteries only (marked by index E) or by Hybrid electric propulsion for the longer flights (marked by index H). The larger size comes in two configurations of the passenger cabin – for 17 and 24 passengers. The choice is yours!

The Atlas Airship technology is based on the time proven nonrigid body or “blimp” concept combined with the latest innovations in propulsion and flight controls. Our engineers have over 20 years of successful experience in design, construction and operation of similar aircrafts used in the past for various purposes. In the future beside the most promising tourist application the new generation of airships can be also effectively used for many types of monitoring and aerial works, both in piloted and unmanned configurations.
