Role Overview 

We are seeking a Loads and Dynamics Engineer to join our team. You will be responsible for leading the L&D team through early design cycles to develop the external loads and flutter analysis and certify the industry’s leading supersonic aircraft Overture and support the technical demonstrator, XB-1 flight test.

Responsibilities

  • Develop certification plan, means of compliance, and interpret issue papers related to loads and flutter.
  • Collaborate across key disciplines (mass properties, flight controls, propulsion, flight sciences, structures, etc) to develop data needed for the aircraft loads in support of multiple load cycles.
  • Guide team efforts on the development and maturation of static loads, dynamic flight loads (gust), dynamic ground loads (landing), and flutter analysis procedures to support downstream design and certification efforts.
  • Ability to apply knowledge of aeroelasticity principles to develop aircraft conceptual design guidance.
  • Aircraft flight flutter testing, including test point definition, control room experience, and coordination with the flight test team.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor, Master or Doctorate of Science degree in engineering with 15 or more years of experience in aerospace or an equivalent combination of technical education and aerospace experience
  • 10+ years of experience in a relevant aircraft product development role
  • Experience with certifying a Part 23/25 commercial aircraft. Knowledge of Part 23/25 sections relevant to loads and flutter, including AC 25.629. Experience coordinating with the FAA.
  • Knowledge in planning for multiple load cycle development
  • Experience leading an analysis team of loads, dynamics, and flutter engineers
  • Knowledge of industry standard procedures for static/ dynamic loads, and flutter
  • Experience with fly-by-wire aircraft and aeroservoelastic implications
  • Participation in at least one aircraft flight flutter test program

It would be great if you had:

  • Supersonic delta wing experience
  • Nastran/Zaero experience
  • Experience with Ground Vibration Testing (GVT)/ Structural Coupling Testing (SCT)
