Private Jets are often considered the yachts of the sky and that may be a logical comparison, but not when you consider how the wealthy travel on a yacht. The super yachts of the world move very slowly and the owners and passengers simply enjoy their time aboard, with out any rush. Time spent on a yacht is about enjoying the trip and not the destination, while airplane or private jet travel is usually all about the destination.
The Airlander 10 is a new type of aircraft being built by Hybrid Air Vehicles to fill a new field in the air travel space. HAV recently achieved a important milestone in being granted a Design Organization Approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency, essentially giving HAV permission to move forward on a full flight test program towards getting full aircraft certification.
