Ventus Executive Solutions

Ventus Executive Solutions (VES) is seeking one or more individuals with a background in Aviation Development and Test to join one of two teams doing impactful and exciting work at DARPA near Washington, DC.

Details:  A former aviator or aeronautical engineer or aviation engineering duty officer with a background in flight controls and structures is highly desired. A former test pilot or engineer with some background in development or refinement of flight control response in fixed wing aircraft would be strongly preferred.   You will be part of a small team developing/building a particularly innovative concept with excellent potential for transition to a program of record.  

Additionally, a second program requires an individual with significant experience in BVR and visual range air to air maneuvering and combat.  Experience with UAV’s is not required but helpful for the work.
