MultiCrew was an idea coined by two high school students in late 2016 as a brand name to encompass some social media groups promoting shared cockpit flying. Starting out as a Facebook page, several iterations of a static website containing information and advice on shared cockpit were developed. The development of the MultiCrew Academy brought some basic community-organised training through shared cockpit, and we trialed the first version of our Copilot software.
We took a break in 2019, and in 2020 started development again, from scratch, this time fully open source. We are now working towards a public release of our Copilot software, which is currently in beta testing!
Harry, the first half of the development team, brings the real-world experience, being in the aviation
industry himself. Harry, the founder of MultiCrew, has been actively involved in VATSIM UK and other
similar-sized flight sim projects.
Harry's main development tasks include most of the backend systems and well as third-party intergations.
An Engineering student, Calum is the other half of the development team at MultiCrew. A passionate flight
simmer, as well as VATSIM controller, his main motivation is to get more involvement in shared cockpit, as
he feels it is the most immersive feature of any aircraft addon.
Calum does most of the frontend work at MultiCrew, as well as some backend too.
