Job Description

Flight Simulation Engineer

Irvine, CA


Supernal is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. We are designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities. This allows passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world’s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people’s ability to move – whether for work or play.

What we do:

The Flight Simulation Engineer supports the air vehicle design, component test, and flight test with engineering flight simulation. This role executes flight simulation development to support design and testing of air vehicles throughout development stages following the guidance from staff engineers in the flight simulation and handling qualities team.
