Why should I consider a membership to the Naval Airship Association?
They do not fly airships any longer. In fact, they stopped in 1962. However, back in 1915 the US Navy acquired their first airship, following Germany's lead in utilizing lighter than air ships (LTA). Airship technology took off in WWII when the Navy led the anti-submarine offense against enemy submarines in the Atlantic. After WWII, we faced another Atlantic submarine threat and once again, the Navy depended on Airships for anti-sub defense.
After the Cold War, and the demise of Navy Airships, a number of LTA veterans created The Naval Airship Association, with the goal to: "gather, perpetuate and disseminate the LTA expertise and knowledge that had been accumulated during the US Navy's long involvement and employment of LTA principles."
The Naval Airship Association survives with the Membership dues of it's members and the kind donations of friends and families of fellow Airship enthusiasts and crew. Please consider donating today to help us keep the history of Naval Airships alive and to continue to bring new and exciting Airships to a new generation.
