We're further reinforcing our engineering team. Drop us a line if you are interested.

Design verification engineer

We are looking for an engineer to join the team at our Turweston HQ.

The role involves advising our members on the requirements for modifications, repairs and new designs, reviewing applications to ensure that they meet airworthiness requirements and sound engineering practice, and responding to technical queries. There are also opportunities to be involved in flight testing, accident investigation and liaison with the authorities.

You’d be working with an experienced team across a large fleet of almost 3,000 active aircraft. Types range from original Edwardians to the latest cutting edge technology kits, and includes types with electric powerplants and the latest electronics.

Candidates must have an engineering background, ideally with experience in the light aircraft industry, and share our enthusiasm for general aviation. We would expect candidates to have a degree in an engineering subject or an equivalent combination of education and experience. Knowledge of structural analysis and experience of demonstrating compliance with engineering regulations is highly desirable. Familiarity with light aircraft aerodynamics, structures (wood, metal, and/or composite), powerplants and avionics would also be useful.

You’ll need some IT competence, particularly with Microsoft Office, have a friendly personality and the ability to work within a small team as well as independently. Excellent communication skills and attention to detail are essential. This is a full-time post, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. It is principally based at LAA HQ, but some travel will also be required. Salary in line with experience.
