Goodyear Blimp Airship Base, Wingfoot Lake near Akron
Goodyear Blimp Airship Base, Wingfoot Lake, near Akron, Ohio, USA

If you are flying in the Akron area, consider flying over the Blimp Base for a really cool view of airship operations!

If you are lucky, you may get a view of a Goodyear Blimp going in and out of a hangar!

This is pretty cool - always overfly this when on my way in or out of Akron, where many other large Airship Hangars still exist from the days of the rigid airship (zeppelin).

Here is the address of the Wingfoot Lake Airship Base:

983 Wingfoot Lake Rd

Mogadore, OH 44260

(330) 796-5272

About The Goodyear Airship Fleet

In 2015, Goodyear celebrates 90 years of its iconic brand ambassador, the Goodyear Blimp, and 60 years of aerial broadcasting. Since its first aerial broadcast over the 1955 Rose Bowl, the Goodyear Blimp has become synonymous with the largest, most-watched sporting events in the world. Today, the fleet consists of three North American airships — "Spirit of America" in Carson, Calif.; "Wingfoot One" in Akron, Ohio; and "Spirit of Innovation" in Pompano Beach, Florida. Complementing its milestone year, Goodyear continues construction on the second airship in its all-new fleet of NT Zeppelin models.
