Today several aviation and airship blogs reported that the FAA is underway with the airworthiness certification of the Zeppelin NT. Yes, we knew it was happening, and while there is still a ways to go, we can definitely dust off the champagne bottle, even if we don't open it yet! With the airworthiness certification process comes vast piles of paperwork covering all the attendant details and if you're interested, you can check them out here. The FAA is seeking comments on the design if you have them. While clearly we're excited to see this happening, this is only one part of the puzzle with the FAA in terms of operating a Zeppelin in the USA. More on that at some point in the future!
Sharp eyes will notice that this is Graf Zeppelin champagne. Not available in the USA (yet...) but if you are looking for goodies relating to the NT and want them now, have a look here - the Zeppelin NT webshop.
