Project time: June 2016 - February 2018

Technologies used:

  • Objective-C
  • Swift
  • Core Data
  • WhirlyGlobe / Maply
  • PSPDFKit
  • JSON
  • Carthage
  • CocoaPods
  • JIRA
  • Scrum
  • Git with GitHub and BitBucket

Example Tasks:

1. Integration of WhirlyGlobe / Maply as Map SDK:

I worked on supporting both offline and online map sources, multiple layers e.g. aviation maps with a NOTAM and weather layer. The map can also display pins for e.g. landing zones or weather data. The pins are clustered depending on zoom level.

2. Weight and Balance Calculation for Preflight:

Pilots need to check various weights and how it affects the center of gravity of the aircraft. Results are displayed as value and also in charts that visualize, which values are out of range.

3. Paperless Cockpit:

A folder based document browser and PDF reader with PSPDFKit. Documents can be filtered by aircraft, base and other parameters. It features a document search and a in document search.
