What We're About
Aerion is on a mission to change the face of global mobility through supersonic flight. Our leadership, engineers, and support staff all share a passion for building a new kind of aerospace company – one that asks questions, stays agile, and is not afraid to try new things. We are creating a company culture based on collaboration, data driven decisions, and adaptability. Working at Aerion is so much more than just building the world’s first supersonic business jet – it’s bringing the aerospace industry to the modern age and beyond.

Here's the Deal
As the Air Data Systems Senior Engineer you will report to the Flight Control Systems IPT Lead and be responsible for all activities related to the air data systems for the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet. In addition to a more traditional Air Data system the AS2 may require development of an optical air data sensing system to enable our Mach Cutoff System (MCS) control concepts.

On any given day you might:

    • Develop air data systems design, architecture and support product plan development, including qualification and certification plans
    • Provide subject matter expert level technical leadership, mentoring and guidance on both practical and theoretical aspects of air data systems
    • Define requirements for the air data systems to ensure compliance with regulations and customer requirements
    • Research new air data concepts and technologies that fit the Aerion technology roadmap
    • Provide validation and verification of air data systems requirements

We're looking for someone who has:

    • Bachelor’s Degree in relevant engineering area, with a Master’s degree in a technical and/or management specialty preferred
    • 10+ years of deep, hands-on experience in air data and avionics systems development, design and testing in a Military, Commercial, or business aircraft development program
    • 8+ years of demonstrated experience specific to air data systems, air data technical principles and technologies, and managing system suppliers as the technical point of contact
    • In-depth and current knowledge of Part 25 regulatory requirements, including air data specific certification requirements (e.g. RVSM)
    • Experience and expertise in the development of commercial and/or high-end business jets strongly desired, including flight test experience
    • Recent experience in developing air data, avionics and other aircraft systems, such as Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS), from concept through certification strongly desired
    • Optical air data systems experience desired
    • Demonstrated ability to understand & define requirements, generate architecture, and achieve compliance 

We want to build a company around people who are:

    • Highly self-motivated with a strong bias for action
    • Effective at nurturing strong professional relationships
    • Committed to fostering a culture of empowerment & creativity
