I hope you find this page helpful in your Construction of a Hot Air
Balloon or Airship. Some of the materials listed here are intended for
aircraft use, some come from other fields but work just fine, some are
unproven and may be dangerous. Please apply caution and common sense when
referring to these pages.
Make sure to join the
Experimental Balloon and Airship Association
if you're serious about building a balloon or an airship.
Please note that the Homebuilding part of the Airship Resources
is under constant development. I owe many thanks to Bob LeDoux and his
Balloon Builders' Journal.
reading materials have also been helpful as well as comments
from many balloonists on and off the Internet.
