Could the MR be maybe building an aerodrome island off the coast like some nations have had to do? BoArthur 20:27, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

You probably don't need as much space for an aerodrome that dirigibles can fly into and out of as you would for a full *here* style airport with runways and so on. If it's only servicing smaller dirigibles, all you would really need would be a largeish field, or big parking lot. Any of *here*'s pocket airports or airfields ought to be up to the job, at least for a small country like the MR. Dirigibles are going to take off and land vertically, too, or close to it, so clear avenues of approach are less of an issue. Geoff 01:58, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
For that matter, as long as the flights launched toward the sea, there would be no problem, really, because they just need clear space to lift up -- most zeppelins do require a small amount of runway because it's a gradual sine curve up, essentially. --BoArthur 18:55, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

What about hangar space? Can the dirigibles be serviced in the open air? Caeruleancentaur 13:18, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I have compromised and put an aerodrome on my map of Prosforion. But an airship will be used only to transport people from the MR to nearby airports in the Hellenic Empire or in Turkey where they can then make connections. Helicopters will be used for all patrol and search-and-rescue work. Caeruleancentaur 19:21, 3 July 2009 (UTC)


I took the liberty of creating these. The first two are two different variations on your description, the third I did just to see whether the compony border would suit it. Actually, that third one is my personal favourite. But it's your territory, so take your pick. Geoff 02:25, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

FWIW - I like the 2nd version.Erskine 16:08, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Personnaly I prefer the 3rd one.--Marc Pasquin 13:24, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
So do I. Caeruleancentaur 13:16, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
