Date: Nov 23, 2021

Location: Montreal Dorval, QC, CA

Senior Engineering Specialist - Flight Control Laws (CLaws) Design, Development and Analysis – FBW (Fly-By-Wire) Aircrafts-MON18453



Bombardier is a global leader, creating innovative and game-changing planes. Our products and services provide world-class transportation experiences that set new standards in passenger comfort, energy, efficiency, reliability and safety. We are a global organization focused on working together with a team spirit.

The CLaws team is responsible for the design, development, testing and certification of the Fly-by-Wire (FBW) flight control laws for the next generation Bombardier aircraft which at present includes the Global 7000/8000 business jet. The CLaws provide a means to manage the aircraft response due to pilot inputs, to reduce pilot workload while fulfilling handling quality and performance/structural loads requirements along with providing additional flight and structural envelope protections.

In your role, you will:

- Develop and improve both new and existing CLaws design as well the corresponding assessment tools using Matlab and C++ programming

- Support CLaws, autopilot and navigation design development for R&D projects

- Perform CLaws requirements validation and verification (V&V) for any Claws updates and/or new Claws designs

- Verify and deliver the CLaws in accordance to the DO-178B standard and SAE ARP 4754

- Design and develop pilot in the loop CLaws based on handling quality requirements, flight and structural envelope protection requirements, performance requirements, test pilot assessments and aircraft level requirements

- Evaluate CLaws and FBW system failures, system stability and performance with analytical methods, desktop simulations, pilot in the loop simulator tests and flight test data


As our ideal candidate,

- You hold a master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, PhD degree is preferred in Aerospace Engineering

- You must have a minimum of 12 years of pertinent experience in the development of Flight Control Laws for FBW (Fly-By-Wire) aircraft

- You must be versed in Aircraft Flight Dynamics with an in depth understanding of Aerodynamics

- You must be versed in "classical" and “modern” control systems design techniques for SISO and MIMO systems and be familiar with advanced control laws techniques and methods

- You must have good understanding of control law evaluation techniques, linear and non-development and testing procedures

- You must have a good understanding of aircraft stability and control with a pilot-in-the-loop

- You must have a good understanding of DO-178B standards, system requirements verification and validation methods and certification of complex software (ARP 4754)

- You should be proficient in using Matlab and Simulink as a simulation, aircraft/system modeling and control law development tool

- You should be proficient in programming Matlab scripts

- You should be proficient in C++ programming

- You must be fluent in written and spoken English
