Zeppelin NT Airships have been in production since the 1990s and the company behind them are Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH who are a German company. The Zeppelin NT is one of the more modern versions of an airship and unlike its predecessors which were non rigid it is semi rigid in design. This helps the airship to be more structurally sound thanks to an internal trust that is a triangular shape.

Thanks to the frame within the airship it is much safer than the old airships that did not have this kind of internal frame that held the steering fins, engines and control car in place. There are three aviation engines inside the Zeppelin NT which enable it to manoeuvre with ease and make for a really smooth experience whilst inside it. Each of these engines is powered using aviation fuel which is high octane and is often used in racing cars as well as aircraft.

In order to control the Zeppelin NT the pilot will use a joystick and steer the aircraft in one of three directions. The technology that is used in the steering for the Zeppelin NT is known as fly by wire. Fly by wire is a way of controlling flights using electronic signals rather than a slight control which is manual and it is a system that is used in many different types of aircraft today.
