You monitor the content of the certification output and manage panel leads (up to about 10 FTE) in the Office of Airworthiness (OoA). You will report to the Chief of Airworthiness (CoA) and act as the point of contact for EASA with the project certification manager for the delivery of one of the three sub-programs (STC Engine, TC propeller, and TC vehicle).
