WHAT YOU’LL DO
The Flight Sciences Engineer– Aircraft Performance position is responsible for predicting and analyzing aircraft, autopilot, and mission performance in support of product and program development teams. This role requires a strong understanding of aircraft design, vehicle dynamics, equations of motion, and the physics of flight. Engineers in this role will predict performance of new vehicle concepts, quantify the effect of changes to existing designs including payload integrations, identify potential improvements of existing designs, create simulation models, and run Monte-Carlo and full software-in-the-loop simulation scenarios. The role also includes the analysis of flight test data as compared to predictions and simulation performance verification with flight data.
