Airlander: Flight deck repairs complete and testing underway
Airlander has announced that the structural damage sustained to the Flight Deck during its second Test Flight last August has now been repaired.
Hybrid Air Vehicles’ CEO, Stephen McGlennan said, “We’re delighted to have made the progress we have in our repairs and look forward to restarting our test flight programme soon.”
"A comprehensive investigation has taken place since Airlander’s heavy landing in August, the root causes of which are now fully understood and a number of changes in procedures and training have been implemented. The aerospace community has been incredibly supportive of the Airlander and what the team continue to achieve.
"We are pleased to report that our insurers, led by Allianz, have helped us significantly in the phase after our heavy landing - reflecting their confidence in the Airlander’s upcoming test flight programme."
