Flight test Program Manager EMBRAER E2 Pratt & Whitney

Business Unit Pratt & Whitney Job ID 48995BR Date posted 05/13/2017 City East Hartford State Connecticut Country United States
The Embraer E2 program began aircraft flight testing in May 2016 with the E190E2 and 195E2 aircraft and now has 5 aircraft operational, with a 6th one scheduled to fly in September 2017. The flight test program will continue through 2021 for the E175E2. Although scaled down to take advantage of cross-program synergies and commonalities, the P&W NGPF Program Office requires specific staffing to manage program execution consistent with other programs. Moreover, the flight test phase of the program requires dedicated customer support and management because P&W/UTC propulsion system components are validated with Embraer testing. The flight test phase is also very critical for our customer since it culminates in certification of the aircraft and enables entry into revenue service. Therefore, it is crucial that P&W provide proper support and exceptional customer service during this element of the program.

The position we are requesting to back-fill is a standard requirement for all programs in the Flight Test Phase of development/certification. In our specific case, this position will be leveraged to support 3 full blown flight test programs (E190, 195 and E175) until Q4 2021.

Job Description:
• Lead program management for the aircraft flight test program, including coordination of delivery and IPPS asset allocation to each aircraft.
• Ensure Flight Test spares, tooling, and on-site staffing all adequately support Embraer program objectives.
• Understand and resolve customer issues pertaining to flight test and drive positive resolution that improves MFA scores.
• Coordinate certification deliverables to support certification milestones.
• Integrate with other elements of PMO including contract and budget management.
• Define integrated schedules with Embraer and report executive status, both internally and to Embraer.
• Interface with on-site flight test team from Engineering and Programs to ensure tactical execution, and escalate critical issues.

  • BS Degree in an engineering discipline
  • Minimum of eight years of relevant experience
  • Demonstrated success with engine assembly and test and flight test programs highly preferred.
  • Experience working directly with air frame customers.
  • Excellent written, verbal skills, and interpersonal skills and ability to relate to customers and to all levels of an organization.

  • Excellent computer skills (SAP, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and the ability to learn new programs/software.
  • Ability to read and understand contract documents.
  • Ability to work under pressure and within time constraints.
  • Excellent organizational skills with ability to multi-task amidst rapid change.
  • Strong bias for action with ability to produce results

  • Education: BS Degree in an engineering discipline
