Posted on: May 12, 2022

Job Description:

Supernal is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. We are designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities. This allows passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people s ability to move whether for work or play.
What we do:
The Flight Technology team is looking for a Sr. Loads & Dynamics Engineer to support air vehicle design, ground tests, and flight tests with analysis and design. The Senior Engineer will lead the planning and execution of airframe static and dynamics analysis, design, and testing of air vehicle designs throughout the development process. The engineer will interface regularly with the Airframe, Systems, Test, Certification, and other groups within Flight Technology.
What you can do:


  • Build aeroelastic models and databases to predict static, dynamic and fatigue loads and structural stability of individual components as well as the entire air vehicle
  • Create in-house analysis tools and processes for multi-DOF maneuver simulation, aerodynamic, inertia, structural models, fluid-structures interaction, and structures-systems interaction including aeroservoelastic analysis
  • Perform aircraft airframe static and dynamic structural loads and flutter analyses of nominal and failure conditions
  • Develop ground and flight test plans, support test implementation, and evaluate test results to improve and validate aeroelastic analytical models, load and flutter predictions
  • Coordinate activities with other teams, develop and manage interfaces
  • Travel, as needed, to support the department
