Our mission

At Ascendance we are building tomorrow’s hybrid-electric aviation with ATEA, a unique Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft powered by STERNA, our in-house hybrid-electric propulsion system. We focus our efforts in designing an innovative, safe, silent, clean and affordable aircraft that will be able to blend into existing infrastructures and regulations to ease its deployment and maximise social acceptance.
If you are looking for a place where you will have a direct impact on very ambitious products, where you will work close to the hardware and where you can witness the result of your hard work quickly, board ATEA and come fly with us toward the future of aviation!

Your role

As a member of the flight physics team at Ascendance you will have a key role in implementing performance models and consolidating processes and tools for aerodynamics.

Your objectives

Your main responsibilities will be to : 

  • Consolidate aircraft performance models
  • Provide performance analysis to identify best operating points in vertical / transition / aeroplane modes
  • Consolidate aerodynamics (CFD) processes to ensure repeatability and adequate quality

Where do we stand?

You will be entering the team during a crucial part of our development. Full scale testbenches are ongoing while full scale aircraft development is running at full speed. You will be working in an interdisciplinary team to find global compromise while being given a high level view of the aircraft and propulsion system’s requirements.
