Abstract Results of modelling of main parameters of airship mooring using various mooring means (high and low mooring masts, an anchor device) are analyzed on the basis of numerical integration of a system of non-linear differential equations, describing the airship spacial motion. A conclusion is made on the feasibility of airship landing and staying on a small parking area when certain limits on wind velocity are realized.
