Little Arms Studios just released its newest build of Zephyr Drone Simulator, a professional-minded simulator already adopted by various flight schools within the U.S. and abroad. We felt this release was particularly noteworthy, however, because we’ve completely redesigned our website and given a new look to the Learning Management System interface. In addition, we’ve now packaged two different popular controller styles or a versatile USB adapter with Zephyr so that pilots will be able to select a complete hardware solution that meets their own preferences. As UAV Coach has a vibrant community we wanted to let everyone know about the newest developments with Zephyr. If you’ve been aware of us in the past we welcome you to come see how Zephyr has transformed into a powerful training tool. If you’re just finding out about us for the first time come discover why Zephyr is a steadily growing platform for serious sUAS training. You can view our full press release on sUAS News.
Thanks to Alan UAV Coach emails, found another drone simulator to use. It is called Zephyr and it is more setup for flight schools and official training. https://www.zephyr-sim.com/about However they came out with a professional version for a single user. The best part is that I can use my controller from RealFlight 7.5. From the descriptions and information this sim is more geared for the commercial drone flyer vice hobbyist. I just purchased it and will try it out this week. Let you know how it compares to RealFlight.
On April 12th the FAA released the Final Rule on flight simulator training under Part 61. The rule allows Part 61 instrument students to log up to 10 hours in basic training devices, and up to 20 hours in advanced devices, with the combined total not to exceed 20 hours. While the regulations regarding commercial operations, Part 107, have not been finalized, the increased use of simulators in other areas has interesting implications for sUAS. Given the influx of so many commercial drone operators, wouldn't the shortest path to a certificate be a computer based drone flight simulator? Even if the only commercial sUAS operators are the ones who have, or have applied for an exemption, that is still over 10,000 individuals that would need to be evaluated and certified. FAA examiners would need to be trained and tested and then appointments would need to be made for everyone to get certified. This would be a huge bottleneck in the system. Now, if we used a computer based solution, like the droneSim Pro drone flight simulator, it would be available at testing sites around the country, or even online. Operators would not need to bring their aircraft to a testing site, would not need to worry about weather, and would not need to coordinate schedules with an examiner for an additional fee. A simulator also allows for more exact testing because we could record or monitor flight parameters and not have to guess what they actually are. A training/evaluation report would be generated and used for approval. The published Final Rule can be found here. More information about the simulator, can be found on our website (www.droneSimPro.com) Safe flying!
Whoa there. Just found this: http://thedroneracingleague.com/fpv-simulator/ It's a free FPV racing simulator. I just bought the FrSky® Taranis X9D transmitter for $230 on eBay, and I plan to start training. Might be a while before I hit the pro FPV racing circuit, but I'll give it a go. Who's with me? Want to train together?
