Job Description


You will be responsible for conducting performance and dynamic analysis for mechanical, hydraulic and occasionally basic electrical systems (aircraft, landing gear, extension/retraction and steering). You will also support requirements definition and validation, verification test activities and assist with the development of methods and tools.

Looking for a new challenge? We are looking for talented engineers with a strong analytical background and will offer training in both landing systems development and the simulation software that we use if you are up for the challenge.

This is a varied and challenging role that provides a great opportunity to develop your engineering skills.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Build computational models and run simulations. This includes but is not limited to; landing simulations, ground manoeuvre simulations and extension/retraction system simulations.
  • Calculate static and dynamic loads.
  • Conduct performance and frequency response analyses.
  • Conduct stability, shimmy and modal analyses.
  • Conduct failure case analyses.
  • Correlate and validate computational models.
  • Write and validate performance and dynamics requirements.
  • Define and document simulation cases and pass/fail criteria.
  • Optimise design solutions in conjunction with other engineering disciplines.
  • Define test requirements and analyse and interpret test results.
  • Generate strategies and plans for the performance and dynamics activities on a given programme.
  • Ensure the application of processes, methods and lessons learned.
  • Adhere to the programme schedules.

Candidate skills & requirements:

Technical Competences

  • Experience of dynamic analysis and computational modelling and simulation. Or comparative experience in a similar discipline.
  • Knowledge of landing gear structure and/or landing gear systems is preferable but not essential.
