For the lifting gas, I would go with hydrogen. Yes it is flammable and it was banned as a lifting gas, but that ban was not based on engineering studies. There are many new designs for airships that use hydrogen as a lifting gas coming out of Europe. With new materials and safety precautions, many believe it can make it safer to use hydrogen.

Even in the 1930s, a case can be made that hydrogen was able to be used safely. Graf Zeppelin LZ-127 made 590 flights covering over a million miles, carrying over 30,000 people, about 13,000 that were paying passengers, and a great deal of cargo over its almost nine years of operation.

I guess I need to have some KFS imperialism to make their influence on the continent bigger. Establish some colonies that become vacation destinations.
