Written by Paula Devine | 07 Apr 2016

Hybrid Air Vehicles, the Cardington based designer and manufacturer of Airlander, the largest aircraft in the world, has reached a staggering £900,000 equity raise since opening up a crowdfunding round on Crowdcube, UK’s leading equity crowdfunding platform.

The aim is to now reach £1 million, but the company may overfund beyond that.

Financial Director, Hwfa Gwyn says, “The response from the investing community is amazing, and it’s great that the Great British public is backing this Great British engineering innovation. We would love to break through the magic million mark.”
