Well I've reviewed those accident lists... I've even thought of joking about how there have only been two fatalities in the last fifty years (much less than fixed winged aircraft)
But for the sake of argument:
- An excess of power could help prevent crashes through more powerful thrusters and plenty of heaters.
- Modern materials and design could reduce the likelihood of a structural failure.
- Helium could be used instead of hydrogen.
Because it is a large, rigid bodied airship with a considerably higher power to volume ratio than past airships it could be made more docile and almost as controllable as fixed winged aircraft.
So back to the original question - if you had to engineer it - how would you transmit power?
