Nowadays new airships or Light than Air (LTA) aircrafts and aerostats are being tested and used for military and civilian purposes all over the world. This revived interest about airships and aerostats brings a multitude of new technical concepts resulting from a deep interdisciplinary research so that the actual state of art about them paves the way for renewed horizons regarding its use and operation in the next future.

With those technological improvements it is expected that airships will become soon a competitive mean of transport for linkage mainly with areas only served by weak or degraded transport infrastructures. Regarding the principles of sustainable development of air transport, airships are also the most environmentally friendly vehicles with lower fuel consumption and higher endurance. Therefore they are conquering new still unexplored markets.

This work aims to present a state of art review about history and use of airships and aerostats, and to evidence how technological improvements in the recent past may impact positively its performance and thus its use in different scenarios in future.
