Aviation Innovations Conference: 2019 Cargo Airships – March 14-15, 2019, Toronto, ON Canada

This is the first airship conference in Canada, since the Remote No More Conference at Winnipeg in 2014. During the past five years, the acceptance of a Climate Crisis has broadened and with this, the interest in cargo airships as a solution to the increasing logistical problems of Northern Canada. The organization of the program follows a familiar format. The first day sets out the Demand for transportations in remote areas of the Canadian Shield and Arctic regions. The second day is designed to establish the Supply of transport airships to meet the identified needs for freight movements. This report is set out in the order of the invited experts’ presentations for the first day of the Conference. A summary of the second day will be prepared for a subsequent edition.
