A photo of Amy Parent (she/her)

I’m a flight simulation developer based in Edinburgh. I’m a queer trans woman (my pronouns are she/her) and I’ve been fascinated by space since I was a kid 🚀

For my work, I make planes for X-Plane. I develop a replica of the UNS-1 Flight Management System, which ships with FlyJSim’s Q4XP, and other planes in the future.

In my spare time, I play video games, make programming languages, and record bad covers of Marina & The Diamonds and Garbage songs. I play roller derby with Auld Reekie Roller Derby, with whom I collect bruises, sore legs and amazing friends.

You can find me on github, instagram, mastodon, and twitter.

If you’re part of an underrepresented minority in tech or science, and want to chat or ask any questions, I’d love to help as much as I can – drop me a line on either of these services, or at amy [at] amyparent [dot] com.
