TUI Cabin Crew Sim
At the TUI Cabin Crew Acadamy future cabin crew is being trained. The cabin crew students have to go through a big book of information for their final test. Of course it is important for them to know all about the airplanes they'll be working on for many reasons. Arguably the most important one of which being safety. However a small group of students at Fontys thought this could be done better. Therefore I, together with my team, decided to create a virtual simulation of one of the airplanes the students will hopefully end up working in. Over the course of 2 years we developed several prototypes and we've done a lot of research to design the simulation. Sadly due to school restraints we weren't able to develop it any further, but the process has taught me a lot about game design, working with a big company and working systematically in a group over a longer period of time. As well as a little bit of the inner workings of the TUI cabin crew.
Ever since I can remember I’ve had a passion for figuring out how things work. This led me to creating websites when I was 11 years old. Which in turn lead me to programming. As with many projects I thought I’d move on from it eventually, but I never did and till this day I’m still programming with the same passion as the little 11 year old me. From 2014 to 2018 I studied at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences for software engineering and game design. During this time I worked on various projects ranging from websites for an art center to a game that helps children with cerebral palsy recover after a surgery.
