Dr. Nefario driving the airship
Unknown, but possibly Dr. Nefario
Felonius Gru owns an airship as his means of air transportation and combat.
Gru's airship is a heavily armed airship used by Gru to transport him over large distances his car couldn't get to. It is armed with a minigun and a concealed missile launcher with many kinds of different rockets, including micro-nukes.
Inside, it is spacious. There are two seats in the front and in the back, there is a claw that can drop through a hatch in the bottom. It also has place for a horde of minions.
The airship itself is tall and quite thin. At the front it tapers to a point and a smaller one at the back. A huge rocket thruster is hung over the back point as the main source of power.
Gru initially uses his airship to steal the SR-6 from a East Asian research lab, only to have Vector steal the shrink ray from the former. Gru attempts to shoot down Vector with his entire armament but fails and gets his ship shrunk as a result. Gru is forced to ride his shrunken airship all the way back to home with 2 minions.
After a considerable amount of time, the airship grew back to its original size and is noticed by Dr. Nefario, who used it to rescue Gru from falling to death from Vector's escape pod. The duo then used the airship's grappling hook to force open the escape pod's hatch and rescue Margo, Edith, and Agnes. However, when Gru's climbing to Margo on the metal hoist, it breaks, and the Minions form a chain to save them and bring them back to the aircraft.
Despicable Me 2
After returning to Gru's lair with the PX-41 Antidote, Dr. Nefario mounted jelly mini guns on the airship and stocked handheld jelly guns inside the vehicle's side bay. Nefario subsequently rescued Gru with it at El Macho's lair. He, Margo, Edith, Agnes, and a few other Minions then landed the ship in the courtyard to take down the rest of the Evil Minions.
Despicable Me 3
After Lucy settles the girls and Gru calls the Minions and Dru to sleep, they jack the airship and replaced Gru's emblem with a "D", as Dru and the Minions "continue the family tradition".
