Maintenance Planning Engineer

As a result of further professionalization of our Design Organisation we are looking for a Maintenance Planning Engineer. One of PAL-V's goals is to achieve Type Certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). To obtain the Type Certificate, it is mandatory to have a (Gyroplane) Maintenance program in which the various moments at which the various inspections, replacements of components, or other preventive maintenance actions such as lubrication of parts must be performed. As a Maintenance Planning Engineer you are the lead in developing a (Gyroplane) Maintenance program.

This is what your working day could look like…
You start your day with catching up with the Head of Office of Continuing Airworthiness, Head of Airworthiness and Operations Manager, among others, to discuss how things are going. After that, you will go to a Functional Design Review where you will meet your colleagues. During this meeting you are collecting and bundling information about the use of the vehicle. You immediately think things through and then provide advice about the maintenance actions that emerge or may emerge during the prototype maintenance. You make sure you record all this and incorporate it into the maintenance program and maintenance documents (e.g. Maintenance Manual, Maintenance task Cards) . During the day, you have your focus on the reliability program that ensures that the maintenance program tasks you described are effective, and the periodicity is adequate. At the end of the day, the Vehicle Test Organisation returns from a day of testing. A test day with the prototype shows that brake pads wear out faster from thought. You then ensure that this is processed for in accordance with the maintenance program. When you go home you will have a satisfied feeling that you have really contributed to the production of the world's first flying car. Tomorrow again a new exciting day!
