An airship is a buoyant lighter-than-air
aircraft that can be steered and propelled through the air. Unlike aerodynamic
vehicles such as fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters which stay aloft
by moving an airfoil through the air in order to produce lift, aerostatic
craft such as airships and balloons stay aloft by filling a large cavity
with lighter than air gas.
