A unique perspective providing breathtaking views!
Founders Brian and Alexandria Hall brought Zeppelin airships (passenger commercial airships) to America for the first time in over 70-years. Based out of Moffitt Field, CA, Airship Ventures made its maiden flight in 2008 and delivers a “WOW” experience of luxurious “flight seeing tours” of the South Bay/Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Skyline, the Sonoma/Napa Valley wine country, and the Monterey/Big Sur coast. Future plans include the addition of a second Zeppelin to be based on the east coast. A third will be devoted to air shows, special events, and work with NASA on scientific research missions. The Halls plan to expand facilities at Moffitt for catered corporate and special events.
Airship Ventures’ team of pilots, engineers, and ground staff all have a wealth of experience in lighter-than-air technology, flight and flight associated operations, maintenance and training and have worked with 19 different types of airship in over 20 countries across five continents. Safety standards are strictly adhered to and the flight operations team is required to undergo random drug and alcohol testing. Airship Ventures is fully insured for commercial passenger carriage and maintenance of the airship is stringent.
Boomers can expect to enjoy charter flights in a comfortable gondola with all the amenities. Gaze at an expansive view from suburban sprawl to agriculture, of the Pacific Ocean and coastline, and forested hillsides and mountains. Book flights for all of life’s special occasions – what a unique way to pop the question! Solve the impossible-to-buy-for person on your gift list, and an airship flight has to be the ultimate thank you gift! The Zeppelin “Eureka” is available for private charter from 2-12 guests, with flights lasting from one-hour to a full day. All charters include flight certificates for each guest marking the special occasion, with a champagne toast at the conclusion of the flight. Catering is included for all charters one-hour or longer.
From 1000 feet in the air at 35 mph, a sample tour could include a seabird’s eye view of old Fisherman’s Wharf and historic Cannery Row of Monterey Bay, Carmel by the Sea, and Big Sur; or the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge, and waterfront towns of Sausalito and Tiburon. Boomers and their families can create a custom package that will provide a lifetime of cherished memories. Are you interested in flying a Zeppelin? If you are pilot rated and have a current aviation medical certificate, you qualify to enroll for their course and 2-day adventure resulting in you piloting one of three Zeppelins in existence!
