Sky rider.

I read about the senior citizen [Maxine Moreau, "Sky's the Limit," Letters, Sep/Oct 2010] who wants to ride the Goodyear Blimp.

From what I understand (I spent 35 years in the aviation field), it is practically impossible to get a ride in the Goodyear Blimp. However, the good news is that it is very possible to get a ride in an airship via Airship Ventures (airshipventures.com). They operate an airship a bit larger than the Goodyear Blimp and sell rides out of Los Angeles, San Franscico, and Monterey. It costs $300 to $1,500 depending on the trip chosen. I haven't done it, but sure would like to. Hease pass the info to Maxine, I bet she would love it.
