Visits & Presentations: Hybrid Air Vehicles receive requests for a huge number of requests for both visits and to give presentations.  Although we would like to say yes to every proposal, we simply don’t have the resources to manage this.  Our primary aim needs to be to create a successful business for the company and at present this means a focus from the entire team on flight testing the Airlander. 
We do occasionally grant requests to visit, but typically this is limited to local schools and local community groups with a link to our company.  We also do speak at external events (on average once per week) and again based on criteria that an employee can easily get to the location without incurring cost and it is an organisation that has a connection with us, such as a branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society, of which we are Corporate Partners. 
Flights: We do not announce flight dates or paths ahead of schedule to minimise disruption to the local population. Please follow our social media pages for realtime announcments and updates when flights take place.

Airlander Media Statement - 18 November 2017
Today there was an incident with the Airlander aircraft at Cardington airfield.  The aircraft was not flying at the time of the incident.  Our initial assessment is that the aircraft broke free from its mooring mast for reasons that will be investigated.  The aircraft has a safety system which operates automatically in circumstances of the aircraft breaking free of its mast, and is designed to rip open the hull and deflate the aircraft.  This is a safety feature to ensure our aircraft minimises any potential damage to its surroundings in these circumstances.  The aircraft is now deflated and secure on the edge of the airfield.  The fuel and helium inside the Airlander have been made safe.    A member of HAV staff sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital for assessment as a precaution.  She has since been discharged.  A separate member of staff also sustained minor injuries while dealing with the aftermath of the incident.    A number of local roads and a local footpath were temporarily closed off by Bedfordshire Police and we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused local residents.    We are testing a brand new type of aircraft and incidents of this nature can occur during this phase of development. We will assess the cause of the incident and the extent of repairs needed to the aircraft in the next few weeks.
