More information:


This workshop will be organized around four principal topics:
1. Addressing state regulatory and policy issues
2. Introduction of cargo airship developers and vehicles
3. Understanding the environment of northern operations
4. Funding for airship development and deployment

The first two days will build on the discussions and efforts that were launched at last year’s cargo airship workshop. We will address how best to bridge the remaining challenges and opportunities associated with bringing this yet to be exploited air transportation system to full deployment in northern operations. The optional final day will offer the opportunity to take part in a variety of local site visits—more information and pricing will be available soon.
