Mission Statement

Born of a desire to preserve not only the history, but also the science and technology of a distinctive branch of aeronautics, our mission is to promote the history, preservation and education of the vital airship business activity, which made Akron, Ohio a world-renowned producer of airships.  Headquartered in Akron, with its membership currently numbering more than 700 persons worldwide, our not-for-profit organization serves as a caretaker of the rich heritage of LTA flight and monitors future developments with great interest.
