We at Volocopter are the pioneers of electric air taxis, i.e. aircraft that take off and land vertically (eVTOLs). We bring urban air mobility to life, by getting air taxis and drones off the gorund in a way that complements current transportation options in megacities across the globe. Our aim is to offer affordable on-demand air taxi services that fly people to their destination quickly and safely. In 2011 we performed the first-ever piloted flight of a purely electric multicopter and have since showcased numerous public flights with our full-scale VoloCity aircrafts (www. volocopter.com).

Your mission during this flight:

As a Flight Control Law Engineer you will develop and tune the control algorithms and model-based software that runs on a real urban air mobility solution. You will design and implement safety-critical models and develop the software that controls and stabilizes our aircraft.

Main Tasks: - Your main task will be the design, documentation, and validation of flight control law algorithms using the MBD workflow. This includes: Modeling in Simulink, requirements tracing, code generation, validation, verification, and testing of the control software

- You will define test requests for our simulator test benches and flight test to verify the control logics and be part of the test execution

- You will support the adjustment of the parameterization of the Flight Control Laws to ensure that the performance and robustness requirements are met

- Coordinate with the other System Engineers to ensure that the Flight Control Laws are correctly integrated in the system

Check in your professional skills:
