VariaLift Airships PLC

Varialift Plc is an all-aluminium airship Design and manufacture company based in Great Britain. Varialift has for 9 years developed and designed an Airship including prototype testing that confirms the functioning of the ground breaking and innovative patented design. Our breakthrough technology has at last brought together the right solution that solves traditional airship limitations and allows us to provide a mass produced reliable, economical range of heavy-lift airships.

The Varialift patents are held for the USA, Europe and Hong Kong. IP patent is pending.

Varialift has carried out an extensive study that includes a potential identified market for hundreds of airships and is a recognized leader by academics and industrialists and operators as the most adequate design for true long term industrial heavy-lift applications.  

Varialift’s design allows our Airships to offer a leap forward in efficiency, durability, reliability and safety. It is a unique craft, allowing remote areas to be connected with no infrastructure and deliver different types of cargo ranging from low density goods to large prefabricated structures of weight 50 to 500 metric tonnes.  

Varialift is moving forward with the plan to set up a manufacturing base and is gearing up for the delivery of its mass produced ARH50, 50 metric tonne payload airship. The ARH250, Varialift’s 250 metric tonne payload craft is to follow in due course.
