- Aerostat : A vehicle, such as a balloon or an airship, which is lifted by buoyancy,
- Aircraft : A vehicle capable of sustained flight within the Earth's atmosphere.
- Airfoil : an object that is moved through a fluid for the purpose of creating lift.
- Alberto Santos-Dumont : French aviation pioneer.
- Balloon (aircraft) : Lighter-than-air craft that remains aloft due to its buoyancy, and without a propulsion system, lifted by inflation of one or more containers with a gas lighter than air or with heated air.
- Buoyancy : The upward force exerted on an object that is partially or completely immersed in a fluid having a density that is higher than the density of the object.
- Gas balloon : Any balloon that stays aloft due to being filled with a gas less dense than air or lighter than air (such as helium or hydrogen).
- Graf Zeppelin (LZ-127) : Large German passenger carrying rigid airship which operated commercially from 1928 to 1937, named after the German pioneer of airships, Ferdinand von Zeppelin.
- Hybrid airship : Aircraft that combines characteristics of heavier-than-air (fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter), and lighter than air (airship), technology.
- Moored balloon : Inflated fabric structure, often shaped like an airship and usually filled with helium, that is restrained by a cable attached to the ground or a vehicle.
- Rigid airship : Airship in which its envelope is retained by the use of an internal structural framework rather than by being forced into shape by the pressure of the lifting gas within the envelope.
- The Nobs : A name used by Led Zeppelin during their 1970 tour of Denmark.
- Thermal airship : Airship that generates its lift via the difference in density due to a temperature differential between the gas inside its envelope and the ambient air.
- USS Los Angeles (ZR-3) : U.S. Navy rigid airship that was built in 1923-1924 by the Zeppelin factory in Friedrichshafen, Germany,
- USS Shenandoah (ZR-1) : The first of four United States Navy rigid airships.
- Zeppelin NT : Class of semi-rigid airships being manufactured since the 1990s by the German company Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH (ZLT) in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
