Have you ever heard of Dangerous Goods Regulation in aviation business? To be short, it is a set of rules for a safe handling and shipping of dangerous goods. As this process is often life threatening to the people dealing with it, our future solution is called to make it safer and all the problems associated with it much more predictable.

We are seeking an active Project Manager who will be involved into the development of a web application for this aviation project and will bring to the table his/her expertise, ideas, and enthusiasm.


Do you know that aviation is the safest mean of transportation? Do you know the reasons behind it?

Thanks to constantly evolving standards, strict rules, and regulations, the aviation personnel always know what to do and how to act in any situation that may happen. Personnel members learn these standards, rules, and regulations as well as train their actions in various situations to be proficient and error-free.

Our solution is called to provide aviation staff with virtual trainings before trying their power in practice. Such trainings are intended to make air transportation safer and more predictable.

The solution we are building will simulate the real-life situations happening in day-to-day operations with the help of modern technologies in 3D visualization. A 3D environment and models must immerse trainees into a situation and create the experience as if they are working with real objects and goods in the field.

This way the training will be much more efficient allowing the trainees to polish and test their skills in a simulated situation as close to reality as possible.
