An airship is an aircraft filled with a lighter than air gas. This allows it to float through the air. Airships also have mechanisms that propel them forward and steer them.

I imagine there is also a way to land, but I don’t know what it is. Maybe the pilots bring large pins and puncture the giant balloon carrying the gas when they want to land. Although, I suspect I’m wrong about that.

No, that’s not right. I know I’m wrong about that. Never mind.

Any lighter than air gas will do the trick, but I recommend that you not use a combustible gas such as hydrogen if you’re building an airship. If you don’t know why not, I suggest that you Google Hindenburg.

A synonym for airship is dirigible.
