Airship Ventures' Zeppelin NT named Eureka, arrives at Moffett Federal Airfield on 25 Oct 2008

Airship Ventures Inc. is a private company offering sight-seeing rides (which the company calls "flightseeing") in a 12-passenger Zeppelin NT out of a World War II United States Navy hangar at Moffett Federal Airfield near Mountain View, California.[1][2]

As of 2008, their airship, built by Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH, is one of four zeppelins in the world. Dedicated and christened Eureka at the 75th anniversary celebration for Moffett Field on November 21, 2008, at 246 feet (75 m) long it is the largest airship in the world.[3][4] Its flight en-route from Beaumont, Texas, where it was shipped, to the Bay Area was the first zeppelin flight in the United States in 71 years.[5]

The company is owned by a husband-wife team, Alexandra and Brian Hall of Los Gatos, California.[6] Alexandra Hall previously ran the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, California.[1] Katherine "Kate" Board is the only female airship pilot in the world.[7]

Airship Ventures and NASA Ames Research Center are in negotiations for their lease of Airfield and facility use that would allow their program to be based in the NASA Research Park.
