Airship Ventures of Moffet Field, CA operators of the world's largest passenger airship, the Zeppelin Eureka, are closing their doors effective immediately!

Founded in 2008, Airship Ventures made history by bringing passenger airship operations back to the U.S. for the first time since the 1930s and they enjoyed a stellar safety record, but it wasn't enough. The often heard battle cry "Keep 'Em Flying" has taken on a fresh new urgency with the news that the last flying B-29 Superfortress has been grounded and is in need of serious repair. During the last airshow flight of the season, the world's only flying B-29 Superfortress, FIFI, experienced an engine problem. Tecnam has launched the new P92 Echo Classic Light at a special introductory price through to the end of 2012. Tecnam says the airplane responds to market demand for a no frills, basic, aircraft that will still retain the great flight characteristics of the best selling P92 family of aircraft.
