ETPS Test Pilot Instructor – Fixed Wing
Job description/Person specification:
Could you be part of the brand-new future of Flight Test Training?
The Empire Test Pilots’ School is recruiting a Fixed Wing Flight Test Instructor to join the School in an exciting period of change, development and growth. ETPS has just acquired a new fleet of G-Registered aircraft to deliver bespoke T&E training in the air and the whole Test Pilot & Flight Test Engineer Course has undergone a significant transformation. To match the cutting-edge technologies introduced in the new aircraft, courseware and ground based learning systems have been completely over-hauled to put ETPS at the fore front of modern training techniques.
ETPS was established over 75 years ago to deliver the best training possible to Test Pilots and Flight Test Engineers; that is still our goal today. Our motto ‘Learn to Test, Test to Learn’ is at the heart of our teaching; we aim to teach experienced pilots and aerospace engineers, from around the world, the philosophy and skills required to undertake all forms of test flying, to become qualified Test Pilots and Flight Test Engineers. Now accredited as a CAA Approved Training Organisation ETPS delivers EASA compliant T&E Courses to both military and civilian students.
Applicants should be qualified as a Fixed Wing military Test Pilot or hold an EASA Test Pilot rating on their civilian licence. If needed, additional training will be provided to qualify you with an EASA Flight Test Instructor Licence with appropriate civilian Type Ratings for the new fleet of aircraft.
You will join QinetiQ as a civilian employee but will work within a team of military and civilian instructors with experience and knowledge in flight test gained from the real-world testing of current military systems. The role is permanently based at Boscombe Down in Wiltshire and we hope to offer the successful applicant a long-term permanent contract with favourable options for company incentives and attractive pension terms.
If you think you have the skills and dedication to deliver world class training in a new modern environment we would love to hear from you.
