FLYING WHALES is looking for a


FLYING WHALES is an extraordinary industrial adventure.

We are developing an air transport solution to support the economic development of landlocked regions and significantly reduce the environmental footprint of cargo transport.

FLYING WHALES has formed a consortium to design, build on three continents and operate worldwide a fleet of LCA60T airships capable of loading and unloading up to 60 tons of cargo (wood, wind turbine blades, containers, mobile hospital, etc.) in hover flight, with a particularly low environmental footprint. This transport system is unique in the world. FLYING WHALES is also developing FLYING WHALES SERVICES, the operating company for this fleet, which will combine the skills of an airline and an airport company.

At FLYING WHALES, we have a highly ambitious vision that today brings together over 200 pioneers, a powerful international shareholder base and some 50 partner companies.Pioneers of the 21st century, men and women who contribute their desire, passion and know-how every day to give birth to a new transport solution, but also to an idea. The idea that companies must be able to continue creating links in order to grow.

This is FLYING WHALES' mission: to open up isolated regions of the world, while helping to reduce CO2 emissions and transport infrastructure.

You want to help us write a page in the history of aeronautics and the economic development of isolated regions? Here's the pioneer we're looking for:


As part of our organic growth in France and abroad, we are recruiting an MAINTAINABILITY ENGINEER - ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS & AVIONICS (H/F)


  • Perform the maintainability analysis of electrical systems and avionics. The electrical systems include components for the generation, storage, distribution and conversion of electrical power (low-voltage and high-voltage generators, AC and DC Buses, transformers & rectifiers, wiring and harnesses, batteries, electric motors…) and a data network between equipment using aircraft data protocol standards. The avionics system is composed of several control computers, cockpit and communication equipment, navigation / flight control probes & sensors and data concentrators. The detailed tasks are:

  • Conduct technical system analysis to capture the functional and physical system design

  • Identify scheduled maintenance tasks and their interval as well as unscheduled maintenance events based on the system design data (3D design, specifications, drawings), supplier data, by applying aviation standards such as MSG-3 & S4000P and by comparison to other aircraft models

  • Identify the required support (standard and special tools, tool kits, equipment, consumables, spare parts, personnel…) to perform the maintenance task

  • Perform the Maintenance Task Analysis within CATIA for specific maintenance tasks considering the operational environment, Human Factors and Ergonomics: integrate tools & equipment; define Keep-Out-Zones for maintenance; simulate step-by-step how the maintenance will be performed; identify potential design improvements to increase supportability

  • Ensure accessibility to components / items, ease of removal and replacement, testability and repairability

  • Investigate in condition-monitoring, health-monitoring and innovative test means to increase supportability

  • Contribute to ground tests to validate maintainability assumptions / identified means

  • Define supportability requirements for the systems / components / items

  • Specify and/or make a preliminary design in CATIA of special tools required to perform the identified maintenance tasks

  • Align with suppliers on maintainability and product support aspects

Participate in design reviews with the systems engineering team and perform trade-off studies for supportability. Provide inputs on design decisions that can impact the supportability


  •        Bac+5 Aeronautical Engineer (or equivalent)

  •        Minimum 5 years of experience as Maintainability Engineer; Integrated Logistic Support Engineer; RAMS Engineer or similar on electrical systems / avionics


  • Very good knowledge on aviation electrical systems and avionics (scheduled und unscheduled maintenance, testability, reliability, repairs/replacement/troubleshooting, avionics data protocols, wiring diagrams)

  • Good knowledge of CATIA V6 (3DEXPERIENCE environment) or similar CAD software

  • Good knowledge on Maintenance Task Analysis

  • Good knowledge on Human Factor analysis and Human engineering standards

  • Good MS office skills

  • Knowledge of other ASD specifications (S3000L, S1000D) as a plus


  • Logical mindset and strong analytical skills

  • Good problem solving and solution building skills

  • Excellent verbal and very good written communication skills to work effectively with cross-functional teams and to participate in technical reviews, program reviews and to be in contact with suppliers

  • Positive attitude, initiative, pro-activeness, and passion

  • Willingness to work in multidisciplinary cross-functional teams

  • Good resistance to stress


  • A stake in the capital

  • The prospect of rapid development in a growing company

  • The option of remote working

  • A gym in the workplace


  • A meeting with François, Talent Acquisition Specialist

  • A meeting with Patrick, Maintainability Engineering Leader

  • A meeting with Pierrot, Head of Physical Architecture

  • A meeting with Olivier, Head of Logical Architecture


  • Contract: permanent contract (CDI)

  • Workplace: SURESNES (92)

  • Available position: ASAP

  • Department: Physical Architecture

  • Point of contact:

  • Reference: CDB10-9

FLYING WHALES is committed to creating an inclusive workspace where employees are valued for their skills and experiences.

If you are passionate, if you are convinced by the project, if this position seems to be a great opportunity for you, we will be happy to meet you!
