Type Certificates

Courtesy of Bruce Blake: Whilst there are literally hundreds of Type certificates for aeroplanes, helicopters and balloons, I have listed below those that I have found for airships. All but one of these was found on the website of the US Federal Aviation Administration. There may be a few others listed in UK, Europe, Russia and elsewhere.

I guess this is a case of the US picking up the aircraft that were not successfully commercialised by the UK.  All three can be found (with similar Type designations) on the FAA website.

 
George Spyrou at Airship Management Services now owns the Skyship Type certificates.

Jim Thiele at American Blimp Corporation owns the GA-42 Type certificate.
