FlightZoomer, the cockpit app for your drone or RC aircraft! Please take note, that this simulation-only app has been superseded by the free regular "FlightZoomer Cockpit 3"-app, which besides the full simulator functionality, offers more frequent updates, better stability and the latest new features. It is therefore recommended to install the regular "FlightZoomer Cockpit 3"-app instead of the "FlightZoomer Cockpit 3 - Simulation Edition"-app. What does this app? FlightZoomer Cockpit 3 - Simulation Edition is a fully featured version of the FlightZoomer Cockpit 3 app, that can perfectly simulate nearly all the capabilities of FlightZoomer, such as: - Creating drone airspaces with airports, runways and navigation aids… - Creating flightplans.. - Flying with 14 different autopilot modes… - Stay sufficiently high in mountainous terrain using the vertical situation display and the terrain map… - Enjoying the stunning FPV view from the aircraft using the synthetic outside view… - Instrument based navigation e.g. using radio navigation aids or the instrument landing system (ILS)… - Even the Surface Dial can be used to control the autopilot… What purposes does this app serve? The Simulation Edition perfectly addresses the following use cases: - Simply give FlightZoomer a trial run, and be it just for fun! - Evaluate the capabilities FlightZoomer brings on the table! - Get familiar with various usage scenarios and procedures! - Run in-depth training sessions before actually taking off with your drone or RC aircraft! - It costs nothing, does not need any additional hardware and runs on any Windows 10 computer! - You can just install the app, launch it and start exploring the capabilities of FlightZoomer!

What is FlightZoomer? FlightZoomer is a system, that provides unparalleled navigation and autoflight features for drones and RC aircraft. This is no wonder, because the system closely recreates the look&feel and features of a real Boeing 787 cockpit!

Additionally you need a smartphone, that runs the app FlightZoomer Companion 3, which will be attached to the aircraft or drone.
