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

You will be responsible for improving the aerodynamic design and the aerodynamic prediction capability in the frame of our ATEA aircraft. You will be directly reporting to the flight physics lead.

Your objectives

Your main responsibilities will be : 

  • Consolidating prediction capabilities with regards to the various test campaigns already performed (scaled flight tests, windtunnel, scale 1 fan-in-wing)
  • Performing aerodynamic studies including rotary wings and propose design improvements with rationalized trade-offs
  • Performing aero-thermal studies for heat evacuation
  • Specifying and selecting adequate component for flight test instruments, e.g. anemometry
  • Consolidate the modeling and experimental roadmaps related to aerodynamic design, up to flight tests
  • Interface with the chief engineer and the building block leaders (airframe, propulsion, avionics, …) to identify most optimal solutions
  • Manage the aerodynamic testing campaign from planning to post-processing and design iterations
  • Comply with certification requirements

 

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 with many issues to tackle regarding communications networks and associated developments
