Airbus Group is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2015, the Group - comprising Airbus, Airbus Defence and Space and Airbus Helicopters - generated revenues of € 64.5 billion and employed a workforce of around 136,600.

Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. 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

Airbus Toulouse is looking for an intern for 6-month internship.

Based on a new design principle of Flight control Laws, called "By-equation" laws approach, on automatic pilot, it consists in a back-to-back comparison on existing Aircraft Laws to retrieve the control objectives of those laws (in term of pulsation, damping, feed-forward,…) that would be needed to obtain the same behavior as the certified Laws.

This internship will give you an opportunity to discover the whole scope of Airbus flight control (and automatic Laws in particular), on various aircrafts, all along the industrial activities needed to make such concept fly.

This internship will start on 3rd April 2017 (subject to some flexibility).

Tasks & accountabilities

Your main tasks will include:

·  acquiring knowledge of the "by-equation" design principles,
·  seeing how it is applied on A350,
·  simulating the same laws principles integrated in the F/C laws of the other existing aircraft (Long-Range, Single Aisle, A380, A400M...) to identify what are the design parameter to be used in each of them to retrieve the same behavior of those aircraft, between the "new" laws and the existing one.

Required skills

You are in the 2nd year of a master's or the 5th year of engineering school, university or equivalent specialising in Avionics Engineering.

You ideally have an initial experience and you have competencies in automatic control of systems, simulation environment (Matlab, Simulink, simulation Framework) and a sense of aircraft behavior and control.

You are autonomous and proactive.

You are a strong team player and have excellent interpersonal skills.
