Solution used

3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the cloud



Founded in 2012, Flying Whales aims at revolutionizing the airship to provide a high-capacity transportation solution that is both more environmentally friendly and more economical. As a pioneer in the transportation of wood and large industrial parts in landlocked regions, the French company chose Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE cloud-based technology platform to carry out this large-scale project.


“We are managing a project based on innovation. To succeed, we needed one single collaborative system to simulate the behavior of the airship and the different systems to be able to validate the design before certification, manufacturing, assembling, operating and maintaining.”

Nicolas Weisse, Overall Airship Design Leader

Why did Flying Whales choose the 3DEXPERIENCE platform?


Flying Whales is facing many challenges and issues that are an opportunity for it to constantly innovate. To do this, FLYING WHALES wanted to implement an end-to-end solution that would combine collaboration and quality. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform perfectly meets the company needs by offering a more collaborative way of working, tools and processes that meet the requirements of certifications and the integration of industrial and technological partners.


Today, the use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform coupled with the valuable support offered by KEONYS allows FLYING WHALES to meet its development priorities while optimising working methods.




To support the company’s growth and development of its airship, Flying Whales aims to differentiate through innovation. Working as a single team while fostering collaboration with partners and suppliers has been identified as the key to maximizing efficiency and accelerating time to market.




Using a single platform allows Flying Whales to meet project budgets, in relation to investors, to build an airship that meets expected quality and safety levels, to meet deadlines, to be on the market at the right time and to guarantee data security.




The company adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud Platform to:


  • Structure development processes,
  • Be more efficient,
  • Optimize all phases of product development within its ecosystem chain.
