  • Contribute to growing the Loads engineering Knowledge Domain by proposing the approaches and techniques to improve the efficiency and fidelity of aircraft loads simulations
  • Use engineering judgment on selecting the appropriate methods, techniques, and tools in resolving complex issues
  • Lead interface with other engineering disciplines such as Flight Characteristics, Structures, Mass Properties, Systems, Fly-By-Wire, Landing Gear and Flight Test
  • Perform analyses and simulations to compute aircraft design loads, in support of new aircraft design studies and continued airworthiness of in-service aircraft,
  • Review FEM models to compute airframe design loads, component design loads (high lift and control surface)
  • Perform dynamic aeroelastic response analyses for tuned discrete gust and continuous turbulence with and without the effects from fly-by-wire 
  • Define restrictions and special instructions for flight test procedures based on loads and dynamics analyses
  • Provide Loads support for both flight test and in-service AOGs
  • Document analyses and findings in engineering certification reports
  • Support Aircraft Landing Gear development, analysis and test.

How to thrive in this role? Skills, knowledge & experience:

  • You have a Bachelor's or Master’s degree in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering. A higher education would be an asset
  • You have at least 15 years of experience in external loads analyses in the aerospace industry
  • You have a good understanding of the FAR 25 certification requirements 
  • You have a strong background in static and dynamic aeroelastic loads analyses
  • You can develop FEM models, compute airframe design loads and component design loads (high lift and control surface) or perform flutter and Aeroservoelastic analysis
  • You have previous experience using Nastran for Dynamic/Aeroelastic analysis; DMAP is an asset
  • You have a good understanding of FEM, unsteady aerodynamics, and frequency-based data analysis
  • You are familiar with concepts of linearizing controls laws to be used for TDG and PSD gust and Aeroservoelastic analyses 
  • You have a good knowledge of engine fan blade out and windmilling dynamic loads analyses
  • You have experience in working in flight test environment, collecting flight test data and comparing flight test data with analyses data 
  • You have a good understanding of the instrumentation (strain gauge, accelerometers, pressure sensors) needed for flight test measurements
  • You have advanced programming knowledge in Matlab, Python, Fortran, C/C++, and Linux/Windows scripting
  • You have good organizational skills in planning work activities and complete tasks within budget and on schedule
  • You have good analytical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills (both written and verbal) and ability to work under pressure

Please note: You don’t need all the skills, knowledge, and experience listed for this position! We’re not looking for the perfect candidate, we’re looking for great talent and resourcefulness.
