Default Cargo Airship

From Dec13/Jan14 issue of Air Cargo World. Another article said 18 hours from LA to NYC.....cruising speed is 174 mph. No mention whether it would be manned or not.

Aeroscraft hopes to be ready for market by 2016 | Air Cargo World News

Numerous thoughts;

- What's the required ATC aircraft spacing at LAX & JFK on an 18mph vehicle? Does it slow down to 9mph for "final approach speed"?

- Your second link says a prototype should be finished by 2010 ... I guess I better hurry up and retire

- Talk about "short field capability"! Do they land at the correct airport or just one in the same city?

- Are they limited to 5lb packages like the Amazon octocopters?

This thing will never work. Coming from an LTA background and now flying cargo in the 135 world, I really feel that the two will never go together. They are too slow and much to vulnerable to weather to be used regularly in the domestic market.
