The MOD needs an experienced aerospace design engineer to work within a small civilian design team at Royal Air Force Wittering. The work is varied, and you could find yourself working on anything from modern aircraft such as the Hawk, Typhoon or P8A to the historic aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Our design engineers produce aircraft structural repair design schemes and In-Service Design Changes for fixed wing military aircraft. Your designs may be for the repair of metallic or composite structures, structural modifications of a minor nature which may include the use of additive manufactured components or could be ad-hoc draughting tasks. You will need to substantiate your designs with supporting calculations and all work is necessarily checked for accuracy. Experienced designers who meet the essential criteria may be nominated as check signatories which attracts a market skills allowance of £ 3000.00 per year or as a Compliance Verification Engineer or Stress Note Signatory which will attract a market skills allowance of £ 5000.00 per year. The work requires travel to remote sites to carry out aircraft design surveys including measurements and photography, and this may require overnight stay. During your work you will liaise with aircraft delivery teams, repair teams, non-destructive test teams, external design organisations, manufacturers and suppliers. Depending upon experience you may need to attend mandatory training courses at various locations throughout the UK. You will work 37 hours per week as part of our flexible and hybrid working schemes and may also be eligible to apply for compressed working hours. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Design Team Leader via the link below or go ahead and apply on the CS Jobs website.
The ideal candidate will have experience in either a DAOS approved or EASA Part 21(J) Design Organisation, but this is not essential. The required skills are as follows:
1. You will have either:
• A minimum of three years’ experience as an aerospace design engineer in aircraft structural repair, modification or stress analysis with the necessary computer aided design skills or;
• A minimum of three years’ experience in aircraft repair or modification installation with the necessary Computer Aided Design (CAD) skills.
2. Experience of CAD systems such as AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor with the ability to produce detail drawings to meet the requirements of BS 8888. Experience will be verified by CAD assessment following the interview. The CAD assessment will gauge the candidate’s ability to produce a 3D solid model and extract 2D views using Autodesk Inventor.
3. An understanding of aircraft structural loads, materials and structural failure.
DESIRABLE CRITERIA (Not Essential)
1. Experience of aircraft stress analysis in relation to aircraft structural repairs or modifications.
2. Experience of aircraft composite repair design.
3. Experience in the use of 3D scanning software and printing.
4. Experience in the design of additive manufactured parts.
5. understanding of military and civil airworthiness requirements.
6. Understanding of the air system document set.
7. Experience of finite element analysis tools such as FEMAP or Nastran/Patran.
8. Microsoft office skills.
The minimum requirement is an aerospace based HNC but candidates with higher level qualifications such as HNC, HND. degree etc in aerospace-based subjects are welcome to apply.
We are collecting this company information for you and we'll make it available soon.
The pilot training conducted by the ground simulator instructor consists of two parts: ground school and flying school. Here the candidates learn the theory of how aeroplanes fly, the weather, and a variety of other aviation-related topics at ground school. Ground school is designed to assist you in passing the knowledge test.
Some permit flight training, while others permit only ground training. A ground simulator instructor certificate does not allow the holder to perform flight training, but it does allow the holder to conduct ground training in many instances. For more information regarding ground simulator instruction jobs, visit Aviation Job Search.
You must pass one or more of the ground instructor knowledge tests to become a ground simulator instructor. Each test has a time limit of 2.5 hours, and you must pass with a score of at least 70%. Each rating necessitates a different level of expertise. You can either take one test at a time or strive for a single ground instructor grade.
Unlike a flight instructor certificate, which must be renewed every two years, a ground simulator instructor's certificate can be kept current by working as an instructor in the past 12 months or gaining an endorsement from another instructor stating that they are still qualified to teach. There isn't much need to get it renewed unlike the flight instructor certificate.
A flight instructor (simulator) is a person who is qualified to educate for a specific kind, class, or category of aircraft in a flight simulator, a flight training device, or both. The duties involve the development of curriculum, tracking the progress of students, giving them grades and assessments. During the training, they closely monitor the aircraft performance.
According to the ground simulator instructor job description, the instructor delivers ATP CTP training in the classroom. As needed, assist as a Subject Matter Expert in developing content for new types of courses. Additional specific services, such as course evaluation and other administrative activities including publishing, safety, quality audits, and other duties as assigned, may be provided. Additional training entails offering academic systems ground school in a classroom/flight training device. The instructor must arrive on time for work and follow all policies and procedures. The aviation training personnel must accept full responsibility for the quality of work produced, both alone and in collaboration with others.

A student preparing to become a pilot receives lessons from a ground simulator instructor. Your primary responsibilities include ground, simulator, and flight operations training. The aviation training personnel develop curriculum, provide lessons, evaluate and grade students, check the condition of an aircraft and related equipment, and create reports on the students. Aviation equipment, flying skills, safety standards and procedures, and CAA laws are all covered in the course that they teach to the aviation aspirants.. They assist students and answer questions throughout the course to ensure their success. A ground simulator instructor can also assist in the recruitment of new students for the programme.
The instructor must convey thoughts and facts to all appropriate parties concisely, respectfully, and professionally while listening closely to others to ensure that information is understood. These candidates must possess organisational awareness. The employers expect the instructors to understand the organisation's mission and its social, political, and technological processes. They understand how the organisation's work and objectives are driven and impacted by programmes, policies, procedures, rules, and regulations. They must work together and collaboratively with all teammates to achieve common goals by sharing information or expertise. Collaborating to solve problems constructively while recognising others' contributions is also a plus.
