Airship Ventures' "Eureka" airship sailed home to Moffett Field in San Francisco after a successful visit to Southern California. Last Thursday through Monday, "Eureka" brought her unique flightseeing experience to the entertainment capital of the world. Within 48 hours of arriving in Southern California, "Eureka" sold out all of her seats and over the course of her five-day tour, the Zeppelin flew more than 40 flights above the Southern California Coast, treating nearly 500 passengers to an unparalleled view of the world below them.
For many of the Zeppelin's passengers, taking a flightseeing tour was a chance to check "fly on an airship" off their bucket list. Others became so enamored with the experience and the views that they have already reserved space to fly again when "Eureka" returns to L.A. for the Fourth of July Holiday. Airship Ventures Founder Brian Hall was very pleased with the L.A. welcome, "The response from people in Southern California was so overwhelming that we knew almost immediately that we'd better start planning our return visit."
"Eureka" will return to Southern California July 2-7.
"Eureka" is the only passenger airship operation in the United States, and the world's largest airship. The Zeppelin's cabin accommodates one pilot, one flight attendant, and 12 passengers, She uses the inert gas helium for lift, and vectored thrust engines for flight, Zeppelin NTs have been flying in Germany and Japan since 1997.
