What is SkyLifter?

  • SkyLifter is a company developing a family of new airships that share a single design concept, overcoming the issues
    typically associated with traditional 'cigar-shaped' airships.  The fresh design can be scaled in size to service the
    market demand across a range of target industries, as presented below.

Airships are capable of low flight speeds, long endurance flights and lifting very heavy payloads vertically.

To date, most airships have been cigar shaped.  This shape may be sensible for airport-to-airport freighting, but is not ideal for applications that need to hold a geostationary aerial position to pickup or deliver payloads in variable wind and with minimal ground infrastructure.

Now, there is an opportunity for specifically designed airships to exploit the benefits of these capabilities and thereby capture significant market positions in: Tourism, Resources, Cargo, Advertising and Patrol.
