The Aeros-D1 could be the new mode of luxury air travel by 2010. It will carry 80 to 200 passengers and fly at altitude of 8,000 feet, which is incredible for a vessel that it an acre en masse. It may also serve as a luxury hotel or a flying casino-or even a flying city. It will travel at 174 mph and be capable of crossing the continental U.S. in approximately 18 hours. All three Aeroscrafts in development are way beyond typical blimps, as each will require 14 million cubic feet of helium and six turbofan jet engines to thrust skyward or to descend to ground level.

California-based Worldwide Aeros Corporation is the firm responsible for the development of these innovative airships. Company founder Igor Pasternak is the man responsible for bring this project to life. Mr. Pasternak indicates that several cruise ship operators and businesses have already inquired about the availability of these remarkable vessels.

The other Aeroscrafts, the Aeros-D4 and D8, will be used for business and military purposes, as the ships will be capable of transporting up to 800 tons of cargo. See tomorrow today at www.aerosml.com/aeroscraft.asp.
