This thread is not a discussion if its construction is a good idea or not. its a discussion of how one would achieve such a goal. It is good that you point out flaws in the plan but you should also do your best to solve it.
Needs for the plan to work.
- Hangar for construction and parking
what kind of buildings are large enough to house a smaller zeppelin?
where would one find such gas?
possible ways to produce your own.
what kind of materials are needed to make the structure as well as the envelope.
how can one make/scavenge airtight fabrics
good types of seals.
a good system of maneuvering
What kind of engine would be a good idea to use?
The old zeppelins used blaugas that had the same density as air and did not change the weight of the craft. what kind of fuel would replace this function. Is it possible to produce blaugas?
these are the problems Ive faced while exploring the concept.
please add more problems and most importantly solutions.

You can actually buy your own Semi-Rigid Airship here: http://www.ahausa.com/ . The most useful one, the Light Utility Model can carry 8 people/ 2380 lbs. Unfortunately, it does cost over $900,000. But in a post apocalyptic world money won't be relevant now will it?
Do you find this valuable?

helicopters,im my opinion,are better than planes,because they can hover when picking people up,you can put a MG in the side if you have one to spare,and helicopters only require a helipad,whereas planes need an airstrip/runway if they need to land
