    The 3E Eberron Explorer's Handbook listed the speed of a sample airship as 100', nearly twice as fast as a light horse (60').

    A 5E Riding Horse has the same speed so I expect it is reasonable to keep airship speeds the same across both editions as well.

    You can also give modifies based on wind speed and the pilots skill level (Proficiency bonus).

    Storm King's Thunder has an airship that goes 8mph. That translates to about 70 feet per round.

    I don't suppose there's a deck plan with that airship? I'd just about kill for a handful of airship deck plans.

    Aside from Google and Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds modules, no. Google that airship on a couple of sites, but none belong to WotC or the original cartographer as far as I have been able to find.

    @Mark Fernandez: There are some very basic rules for airships on page 119 of the 5e DMG.

    @Tersival: You can get a free copy of the SKT airship deck plan from Dragon+ here.

    Ah, you found it. I thought it was in one of the issues, but I had been unable to find it.
