CALIFORNIA, Dec. 5, 2020 — Aerovehicles Inc. is proud to announce it has joined efforts with the World Air League® and [INVNT GROUP]™ to organize the world-first around-the-globe airship race: the World Sky Race. The responsibilities of Aerovehicles are managing Airship operations including construction, crew training, and logistic requirements of the Skyship 600 and Skyship 500HLs for the World Sky Race.
The World Sky Race® will be the largest man-made event seen by live spectators in the entire history of the human race…
The inaugural World Sky Race® is a historic competition of lighter-than-air ships racing 30,000+ miles. In seventeen back-to-back races that completely span the globe, the winner will be crowned the World Sky Champion.
In their quest, the competing airships will travel from the London Greenwich Prime Meridian southward to Africa and the Middle East, cross the Indian Ocean to Equatorial Asia and through the Orient, island hop across the Pacific to Siberia and the Bering Straights, journey south down the western shores of North America to Central America, turning northward up to the North Atlantic, crossing over to the European Continent and at the French Prime Meridian land in the Gardens of Versailles Palace for an exciting finish in a historic race, completing a full global circumnavigation.
