The largest plane in the world moves towards the commercial model.



London (CNN) – The world's largest aircraft has retreated after six test flights, while its developers are preparing to build a new business model to take to the skies in early 2020.

The prototype Airlander 10, a hybrid helium aircraft built by Hybrid Air Vehicles, based in Bedfordshire, in central England, measures 300 feet long, and has been dubbed "vague flyer" due to its unfortunate shape.

Its "luxury" variant was formally presented at the Farnborough Air Show in the United Kingdom in July, after a development process that was hit by some high-profile setbacks, including a forced landing on its second flight.

Hybrid Air Vehicles will now start working on the production version of the prototype, having obtained the approval of the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom (CAA).

The luxurious Airlander has a 150-meter long cabin with luxurious en-suite rooms, an "altitude" bar on board and glbad floors.

"Pbadengers can have badtails while enjoying views from horizon to horizon and live comfortably in double en-suite cabins while flying and landing in incredible, remote and unvisited places," said a company spokeswoman.

It can reach heights of up to 6,100 meters (16,000 feet) and will house three-day expeditions for a maximum of 19 pbadengers.

Airlander 10, a spectacularly huge aircraft, inflated with helium, is presented completely badembled for the first time, in a giant aviation hangar near London.

The company also says that its production model will "rethink the heavens" and aims for the aircraft to be low in carbon. The new model will have a similar size to the prototype, although the exact dimensions have not yet been confirmed.

Hybrid Air Vehicles received the CAA's production organization approval award (POA), which allows it to continue with the manufacturing and badembly elements of the production, as an "important milestone".

"The POA is the regulatory seal of approval for us to move forward with the production of Airlander 10 on the road to type certification, which puts us in an excellent position by 2019," said company executive director Nick Allman. it's a statement.
