Tandem 3 Under Construction

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

The third Tandem airship is under construction at JPA. Tandem 2 is the highest flying airship it the world flying at 95,000 feet in 2011. Tandem 3 will fly at even higher altitudes and also have longer duration. We are expecting first flight in early 2016.
