Airborne-NextGen 03.05.24: Skydio Defends, TRU VR Sim, AMA Authorized

Also: HAI Becomes VAI, Blimps Are Back, ERAU Partnership, General Atomics

Skydio announced that customers have begun receiving the first of its X10D, its flagship defense and government drone. 

The announcement follows the successful rollout of the older X2D, which has seen thousands of systems delivered across the USA and its allies around the world. Textron's Bell Flight Training Academy will be using a brand new type of Virtual Reality Flight Simulator at their flagship location, with a brand-new Veris VR Flight Simulator. The unit was recently shown off at the HAI Heli-Expo 2024, offering clients a clean-sheet design that combines a traditional full-motion experience with visual augmentation to make it feel even more like the real thing. After much ado, concerns about event sanctions held by model aircraft groups associated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics have been put to rest. Under authorization, the FAA grants AMA members the ability to operate without broadcasting remote ID information at AMA Sanctioned Events. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-NextGen!!!
