Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other’s expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary – on the ground, in the sky and in space.
Description of the job
Start date: 1st July 2019
Duration: 12 Months
The Landing Gear Centre of Competence (CoC) is one of Airbus Commercials six Engineering Centres of Competence including Cabin and Cargo, Airframe, Systems, Flight Physics and Powerplant.
We provide operational leadership and excellence across Landing Gear topics:
Landing system definition and vendor management for new programmes, incremental developments and to support continuous product development.
Integration of the Landing Gear product into the aircraft.
Evolution, application and maturity of Landing Gear development processes.
Holding relevant capabilities, competency, technical expertise, signatory rights and Design Organisation Approval.
Proactive product support for industrialisation, production and in-service.
CoC business strategy and operations management.
Execution of product, technology and innovation strategies to deliver Landing Gear related Research and Technology (R&T) for future and current Airbus products.
The philosophy of the CoC is to provide a challenging, exciting and rewarding working experience for all of our people. We embrace diversity and believe in building empowered teams of complimentary personalities and skills. Key to achieving this are respectful team members with good organisational and communication skills, an ability to listen, learn and take the lead in the correct situation.
Tasks & accountabilities
Landing Gear engineering requires a combination of structural and systems disciplines.
Structural aspects refer to the mechanical landing gear and the interfaces to the aircraft structure to take loads upon landing.
Systems refer to hydraulic, electrical and computer systems which manoeuvre the aircraft on the ground and retract or extend the gear once in flight. The development of these systems requires control laws and other safety critical software.
Airbus is the aircraft integrator and the Landing Gear CoC interfaces and manages many suppliers to provide the components, equipment and systems that together form the Landing Gear product.
Within the CoC we have a stream of work dedicated to R&T that seeks to define the future landing system product. Topics include advanced materials and structures, future manufacturing including Additive Layer Manufacturing and next generation sensors, systems and monitoring.
The Landing Gear CoC is also a strong contributor to the Airbus Digital Transformation and Skywise Digital Platform.
We are working to extract value by applying advanced analytics to the big datasets that are generated across the full lifecycle of aerospace development. This includes in-service and flight test aircraft fleets, ground test rigs, virtual test simulations and the completion of our Engineering processes.
We are moving towards a Model Based System Engineering approach, targeting the use of models and digital tools as a means of communication and knowledge capture.
We are enabling the connected, digital “Internet of Things” aircraft and progressing towards a digital twin of our product.
We are seeking to take value from virtual and augmented reality technologies.
Work Environment and Tasks
You will be given the opportunity to work with experienced teams across the Airbus aircraft family, from new development through to in-service aircraft, as well potentially working alongside suppliers, customers and manufacturing assembly. You are expected to contribute to the creation of optimum solutions for the landing gear product, to own projects where possible and to support on-going activities. You will also join our early careers community who support each for professional development and to help integrate into life in the vibrant city of Bristol.
This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.
You must be an undergraduate for the full duration of the internship.
