We present one of the first Internet-accessible airship simulators, based on a comprehensive airship dynamic model. The simulator is meant to be used as a tool for the development of control and navigation methods for autonomous and semi-autonomous robotic airships and as testbed for airship pilot training. Realistic views of both the airship in flight and that of a virtual pilot are provided, as are commands to apply thrust to the engines, swivel them up and down, and deflect the control surfaces. This work is significant for providing robotics researchers with means to safely experiment with airship control
