“After extensive flight testing in California, the Pathfinder 1 will transit to the former Goodyear Airdock airship hangar in Akron, Ohio, which the company has acquired as its future manufacturing location. There, an even larger 180-meter long airship, the Pathfinder 3, is already under development.

Ultimately, LTA intends its aircraft to be used for humanitarian missions, deploying cargo and personnel to areas that are inaccessible by road. Brin runs a separate non-profit, called Global Support and Development, that has already carried out such missions by sea, in the Caribbean, Latin American and the South Pacific.”
