A vacancy for a Flight Control Development Engineer (m/f) has arisen within Airbus Helicopters in Marignane.
Our objective is to make helicopters flight safe, easy and performant. We are a multidisciplinary international team of passionate engineers with a long experience in Flight Control Systems. Proximity to the product, prototyping and experimentation are in our DNA.
Our operating model is based on the multi-competency and the end-to end design: research studies, pre-design, architecture design, software design, certification, safety, simulation, bench, V&V activities and flight testing.
To support this model, tools are key. They are necessary to design safety critical systems like FCS and contribute to the efficiency/quality of the team work.
While working creative, working on Flight Control Systems is clearly requiring simultaneous application of rigor and follow Standards and further the discipline to perform the required substantiation of the design activities in front of internal stakeholders and also authorities.
We are looking for a highly engaged specialist with both a solid computer culture and a willingness to dig into flight control system design.
You will work with the always evolving existing methods and tools and you will propose, discuss and implement new solutions for simulation, design, and automatization.
You will have the following skills and experience:
Educated to 5 years' degree level (or equivalent) in Aircraft design and Electronic engineering
At least 3 years of experience in engineering
Understanding and applying techniques of automatic control, including filtering and estimation, stability control?
Ability to use info/data from sensors in control/estimation algorithms.
Knowing and applying application data specific processing techniques and technologies related to Flight Control Systems.
To identify the activities of the development life cycle that are necessary to develop a system/product and provide the level of confidence, which is consistent with regulation and program requirements
To define checkpoints and reviews with associated maturity expectation aligned with program phases and gates
Ability to provide sufficient detailed data and information about system elements to enable the implementation consistent with architectural entities as defined in models and views of the system architecture and in accordance with the allocated requirements.
Ability to work on the hardware (Benches, Helicopters, Simulators, on site)
Language Skills: negotiation level of English, negotiation level of French
