About the company:

Revolutionising urban air mobility and electrifying air travel

Join the Flight Control Systems team based in Bristol as an Advanced Flight Control System Engineer and help us to achieve our mission of pioneering electric aviation.

What will you be doing?

As an Advanced Flight Control System Engineer you will be working across a variety of disciplines to create specifications for the different components of the flight control system (sensors, FCC, actuators etc) as well as working in the different integration activities of the flight control system components.

You will participate in all the phases of the verification activities (development of test plans, test procedures, test in the simulator, data analysis and test report) as well as defining and running commissioning tests and supporting flight test activity.

You will be working closely with a variety of engineering teams, whilst managing relationships and working with partners and suppliers of hardware, software and technical services.

You will report to the IPT Lead – Flight Control Systems and be a key member of the Flight Control Systems team, supporting the continued development of our in-house expertise, specialist knowledge and capabilities.

What would we like you to bring.

We want you to be successful in your role and so in order to achieve this you will need to have demonstrable experience working with Flight Control Systems or any other Avionic Systems and/or actuation system, as well as knowledge of control design and aircraft flight characteristics. You will have the ability to effectively manage multiple tasks and thrive in a complex aircraft development environment, where managing multiple priorities concurrently is the norm. Experience of working in a highly regulated environment on safety critical systems is essential and ideally you will have familiarity with DO-178B/C, DO-160, DO-254, ARP4754A, ARP4761 standards.

A spectrum of technical competencies is preferred, such as expertise in working with multiple types of air vehicle including rotorcraft/multirotor, programming in MATLAB/Simulink and Python as well as familiarity with SysML. Ideally you will have had direct involvement in flight test programmes however this isn’t essential. You will have gained this experience from either Aerospace or other highly regulated sectors.

We're on a mission. Where others see limits, we see opportunity, and we work at pace. Working at Vertical isn't your average role but for those seeking a challenge, a flexible, supportive organisation and an incredible team; working here is an opportunity to do the best work of your career.
