I am going to try and invent the wing suit version seen here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLDY5mv0DeU

This be for the special forces paratroopers drows only and maybe ferals but they gonna need parachutes added to their outfits since they don't have air foci to help soften their landing
A survivalist should not be a pessimist, he should always be positive, happy and enjoying life more than anyone else because he understands that each minute of peace we have is precious and unique, and he never takes it for granted.

Hang gliders with air foci for bursts of 'powered' flight. Think Nausicaä's Mevhe. :)

I could maybe whip up a quick "life boat" type set up... balloon, pair of whirling blades around the edge to give direction and added lift... hmmmm...

Real quick, is this an Airship or a blimp? >_>

Mmm, kinda looks like a dirigible to me. But then again, isn't a dirigible a kind of airship? XD

It most certainly is an airship of sorts.

Air ships are defined as lighter than air craft equipped with steering and propulsion units.

Balloons are lighter than air craft that are directed solely by wind and external factors.

Air ships can be...

blimps - inflated gas bags whose form comes from internal pressure, Gas must be added or vented to compensate for altitude.

Semi rigid frame - with gas bags held in shape by a internal frame so it remains extended regardless of the internal gas pressure.
(usually applied to hot air vessels where the gas is hot air being constantly fed to the lift bag from a motor that also propels it.)

Rigid frame (zeplins) - hollow frames covered by a smooth skin with the gas bags mounted within so the gas bags can inflate and deflate with changes of external air pressure while the vessel maintains it's shape. This allows greater height flexibility.

Vacuum tanks - theoretical vessels with rigid tanks that gain buoyancy in the air by having the air in them pumped out so they weigh less than the air they displace. Usually requires some super strong ultra light material to make it work.

I was being rhetorical Tim. Although on an unrelated side note, the idea of a vacuum airship is intriguing.

How would you make a vacuum airship anyway?
