It is way more motivating to work on something that makes the world a better place. We are starting an enormous socially valuable aviation project called to enhance aviation safety. Thanks to cutting-edge technologies the platform will make aviation staff better prepared for various real-life situations happening in day-to-day operations.

We are seeking an active Project Manager, who will be involved in the development of this web application and will bring to the table their expertise, ideas, and enthusiasm.

Project

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. For this purpose, personnel members should learn these regulations and train their actions in various situations to be proficient and error-free.

Our solution is called to provide aviation staff with virtual trainings before going to the field. This is to make aviation safer and more predictable.

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