Zephyr is a result of a long and intense development effort, and we are excited to finally make it available to the sUAS community after integrating functions and capabilities suggested by more than 50 enterprise customers and drone professionals who participated in Zephyr beta trials,” said Kyle Bishop, CEO of Little Arms Studios. “As proven during the trials, Zephyr has immediate, wide-ranging uses for universities and community colleges with growing drone curriculums, aviation schools that train professional drone pilots, public safety and disaster relief agencies, and enterprises with industry-specific needs and applications.”
Based on feedback, Zephyr will have many new features such as an updated drone physics model, improved usability, visual updates, expanded controller support. This is on top of the other unique features Zephyr offers, including a learning management system that allows instructors to track trainees’ progress to ensure learning objectives are met and skills are developed, and a host of other administrative features that are important to enterprise customers. “Zephyr is currently far ahead of other drone pilot simulators currently on the market, and we are committed to maintaining our competitive lead over other drone simulators by working directly with aviation schools and institutions, major drone suppliers and enterprises,” said Stewart VanBuren, CTO of Little Arms Studios.
