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!

  • Selecting adequate computation means (analytical / CFD / windtunnel / scale 1 demonstrators data)
  • Specifying required load validation means
  • Increasing computation precision and ensure further coverage of loads to optimize the design
  • Identifying critical load conditions over the flight envelope
  • Supporting and interfacing with the stress & structural design team
  • Developing methodology and reporting to support flight permit obtention and type certification

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.
