Helium airships in the Scottish Highlands

A study for Hybrid Air Vehicles, which hopes to have its airships in operation by 2027, found that they could serve the islands with an infrastructure investment of roughly $2.5 million. Weather would allow regular flights about 96% of the time, except for trips to Jura (79%) and Papa (85%). The report concluded that an optimum configuration for the service might be 30 to 40 seats and 6,000 kg of freight.
