180 000 m3 of helium to effortlessly lift the LCA60T and its 60 tonne payload.
Where the roads end, the LCA60T takes over. Its hovering capability coupled with its substantial payload opens up new horizons for the development of remote areas.
Impressive dimensions: 200 meters long, 50 meters in diameter. A 96-meter long, 8-meter high and 7-meter wide cargo hold will allow to transport loads in complete safety. Is the load too big? The transport “under slings”, outside the hold, will also be possible.
A rigid structure made of composite materials covered with an innovative textile. Inside, cells containing the inert, non-pressurised carrier gas, helium.
Floating on helium means that less energy is used to fly. CO2 emissions are therefore reduced. The soon-to-be all-electric propulsion based on hydrogen fuel cells will accentuate this reduction. On the ground, no heavy transport infrastructure is needed to degrade the environment.
