In the coming days, Pasternak will strap himself into a seat next to the pilot in the zeppelin’s glass
cockpit when it makes its maiden flight above Tustin. His odyssey, which began during the Cold War, is about to reach a milestone few could have foreseen.
Pasternak’s airship might be a huge local success for the OC, and we hope his firm will want to stay and continue to develop the technology. One local, could-be practical application we might see for his creation is moving cargo containers from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to the rail heads in San Bernardino County, potentially reducing some truck traffic (illustrated in the video).
As is common in aerospace, Worldwide Aeros Corp.‘s first applications could be military. Most of Aeros support is from Pentagon funding — unlike other government projects like High-Speed Rail, a very reasonable and prudent use of tax money.
