Honoring the Legacy of Wolfgang von Zeppelin

It is with great sadness that we say farewell to our dear friend and advisor, Wolfgang von Zeppelin.

A brilliant engineer at heart, Wolfgang played a pivotal role in the resurgence of Zeppelins in our modern era. His technical expertise and pragmatic approach were invaluable to the world of lighter-than-air technology. To us at roboloon, Wolfgang was the source of decades of airship knowledge. He knew stunning details about their history as well as hidden secrets of the engineering and operations of today’s airships.

His dedication to innovation was matched by his humility and grounded nature.

Wolfgang’s legacy includes the revival of Zeppelin technology, a testament to his exceptional vision and dedication. His book on Ludwig Dürr, the chief designer of the first Zeppelins, continues to inspire and guide us, reflecting the bravery and adventurous spirit of early airship pioneers.

We fondly remember our conversations at the Zeppelin Hangar in Friedrichshafen, where Wolfgang’s passion and insights illuminated the history and future of Zeppelin airships. His wisdom and warmth will be greatly missed, but his contributions will forever soar.

May his legacy continue to inspire future generations of engineers and dreamers.
