The LCA60T is an airship that Bolloré Logistics intends to use within the scope of its logistics projects, for lifting and/or transporting abnormal loads of up to 60 tonnes. The maiden flight of the first LCA60T is planned for the end of 2025. It will be able to deliver to remote locations and areas that difficult to access via conventional modes of transport. Furthermore, the LCA60T will be produced in France at the FLYING WHALES production plant in Gironde. FLYING WHALES will also benefit from a plant in Quebec for the Americas, and a third one in the Asia-Pacific region.
