The Goodyear GZ-20 was a non-rigid airship class introduced in 1969 in the United States by Goodyear as its signature promotional aircraft, the Goodyear Blimp.

The Goodyear blimp in X-Plane 11 (in flight).The design is a development of the GZ-19 class, featuring a larger envelope to carry the "Super-Skytacular" night sign and more powerful engines.

As of 2017, All three of Goodyear's GZ-20As have been decommissioned.

The blimp received a Guinness World Record for the longest continuous operated airship with fourteen years of service.

This aircraft includes three liveries, custom sounds, and a 2D panel.

For takeoff, increase the displacement lever so the blimp just floats off the ground (with full fuel tanks simply move it up all the way).

Takeoff as you would in an ordinary STOL aircraft and simply pull back on the stick all the way. A steep climb is normal.

The blimp cruises well at around 40-50MPH.

Land as you would with an ordinary plane, with a normal descent and approach. Just before touchdown, chop the throttle, and reduce the blimp displacement (leaving a little bit so the blimp sits upright).

You should come to a stop very quickly.
