Class Information
Number: 244/29
Name: Aeronautics > Aircraft, lighter-than-air > Airship and fluid sustained
Description: Propelled aeronautical machines sustained by their buoyancy relative to the air, having also provision for sustentation by the reaction to downward movement of restricted masses or jets of air or other fluid. The forward propulsion of the machine may also be derived from movement of the same or similar masses or jets of air or other fluid.
