Job Listing Description

Aircraft Loads Engineer

Description:
General Summary:

Responsible for determination of flight and ground static and fatigue loads of airframe components, assemblies and systems, to ensure aircraft design is structurally sound and meets all regulatory and company requirements related to structural strength and fatigue.

Duties and Responsibilities:
Applicant must be able to define and validate aircraft flight and ground loads through simulation/calculation using established theory and methods


Qualifications
Education, Work Experience, Certification and/or Licensure:
BS degree in Aeronautical, Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering required, MS degree or PhD in Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering is preferred
Applicant shall possess a minimum of 6 years’ experience in aircraft external Loads analysis; 10 years’ experience is preferred
Excellent communication skills both written and verbal
Experience and demonstrated proficiency in Unix/Linux, FORTRAN, C/C++, MATLAB, VBA, MSC/NASTRAN, MSC/PATRAN, MSC/FLIGHTLOADS is required. Python experience and/or proficiency is desirable

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
Knowledge of static maneuvers, static ground, control surface component loads, component pressure loads development, and ground support equipment loads, along with experience in dynamic loads, such as tuned gust, PSD, equipment design accelerations, and dynamic landing loads per FAR/EASA requirements. Experience with turbine engine fan blade out, emergency landing loads per FAR/EASA requirements, as well as flutter and vibratory analysis, is desirable
Knowledge of, and experience with, FAA FAR 23 and EASA CS 23 Loads regulatory requirements and means of compliance is required, and experience with FAA FAR 25 and EASA CS 25 Loads regulatory requirements and means of compliance is desirable
Organize, schedule and effectively coordinate work packages / phases, and lead less experienced team members in loads analysis tasks
