Aerial Humanitarian Aids

The Airship Archangel is Designed to Assist Disaster Victims

— September 2, 2011 — Autos
The Airship Archangel is a conceptual aircraft designed to aid disaster victims. This unique airship was designed by Reindy Allendra to be able to quickly and efficiently provide support to people all over the world.

The Airship Archangel's four engines function exactly like those of a VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft. In layman's terms, this means that the engines can work like both a helicopter's rotors and a jet's engine. The airship is also designed with a loading bay that can be dropped down from the underside of the airship during mid-flight.

What really makes the Airship Archangel unique is that it is designed to help people. There have been many, many conceptual airships proposed by designers recently, but the majority of them are designed to be used by the wealthy for leisure. It is refreshing to see a designer dream up an innovative aircraft that isn't designed for commercial purposes.
