Designed by United Kingdom company Design Q, the passenger cabin will likely be 46 meters long (151 ft), which makes it bigger than the cabins of most single-aisle airplanes. It will probably be efficient at accommodating 19 travelers plus staff, on trips around 3 days in length.
Among its capabilities will be exclusive en-suite sleeping quarters, an Infinity Lounge with floor-to-ceiling glass windows offering “horizon-to-horizon” field of vision, and an Altitude Bar in which passengers can both have refreshments and take pleasure in fine airline cuisine.
At present regarded as the world’s biggest aircraft, the Airlander 10 is driven by four 325 hp turbocharged diesel engines and utilizes aerodynamic lift similar to standard fixed-wing airplanes to blast off, with helium having it aloft as soon as it is in mid-air. Furthermore, it can bear payloads of around 10,000 kg (22,050 lb), and does not need a purpose-built runway – this may let the tourist-version aircraft to arrive at unconventional areas that are unreachable to normal aircraft.
HAV experienced a glitch last November, when the sitting airship broke free of its mooring mast. A built-in safety system instantly pulled open the hull to be able to deflate the air, thus keeping it from moving. It has since been identified that the mishap happened because of an incorrectly-secured safety locking procedure between the airship along with the mast.
