Next-generation airships

Join the team

Our Mission

We are united in the belief that next-generation airships can complement humanitarian aid and reduce the carbon-footprint of aviation.

Airship manufacturing was born nearly 100 years ago in Akron, Ohio, by a generation of brilliant minds and skilled hands.

LTA, Lighter Than Air, is rooted in that rich history. Our teams working in the historic Akron Airdock collaborate with teams in Mountain View, California, and Gardnerville, Nevada. We’re harnessing the hands-on spirit and technological advancements of the time to inspire a new generation of airship R&D professionals, engineers, machinists, and flight crews.
