I think, the most serious point is :

"In order to carry this out the aim is to raise £20 million in share capital for
a new company to be called Varialift Airships PLC."

Here in germany, we had a similar company, which gave "opportunities for
investmenst". They even built one of the largest hangars in the world, which
is still in use today. As a large swimming-bath and relaxation center ... ;D

This sounds incredible... the ability to float off the ground, and accelerate to the flying speed of an airplane. I just asked in another post if something like this was possible. I guess it is. How fast can this baby go?

Just had another quick look at the site, but couldn't find any mention of "JET aircraft speed" ...
To reach "aircraft speed " is simple, I think ! :D
