Pilots in Australia are able to take aviation exams via the web using an application written by Lower Hutt-based software house Superstructure Development 2000.
Australian company Assessment Services uses the system to offer pilots web access to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s CyberExams system. The entire booking, sitting and marking procedure is handled by web applications. Bookings via the system started on March 4 and the first exam took place on March 11.
The system also includes a business-to-business interface with the National Australia Bank’s secure internet payment service.
Superstructure 2000 used Microsoft’s Visual Studio.Net to develop the system.
Microsoft’s new C# programming language was used as the language on the server side and application interfaces to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 at the back end.
