Flying Snoopy’s New Airship

By Robert Mark on August 22nd, 2008

Finally, a topic I know almost nothing about … flying a blimp, or as it is more commonly known in FAA language, an airship.

This well-produced short video tour and introductory flying lesson of the newest of the MetLife airships, the Snoopy 3, is narrated by airship pilot Charlie Smith.Jetwhine.com

Watching the Goodyear blimp at AirVenture a few weeks ago makes me sure this piece of video is worth the 3 minutes it will take to watch it.

A light sport aircraft it isn’t. In fact, this is nothing like flying an airplane.

Enjoy

    My big question is — just where does one go to get trained to fly a blimp? And for that matter, does one get hired to fly a blimp first and then get trained, or do you need to come to the table with the rating first then get hired?

    I personally think it would be really fun to fly one!
