The Lightning Direct Effects (LDE) group is a transnational team within the System Engineering Design Office responsible for providing all aspects of aircraft protection against the direct effects of lightning strikes, with a significant focus on protection of fuel tanks and the general fuel system, keeping the growing fleets in the air and preparing technology for the array of Zero Emission aircraft to be introduced in the near future.
The LDE team’s responsibilities include developing and applying innovative lightning protection solutions by focusing on research & technology, working closely with research institutions, industrial partners and the airworthiness regulators.
The department operates across all Airbus sites, all Airbus aircraft programmes and all aircraft components (wing, fuselage, tail) and new graduates will be fully integrated into a transnational way of working, encouraged to work with colleagues on all Airbus sites and functions, on a daily basis.
As the graduate's main mission will be to provide protection to the fuel system, Graduate Engineers will also work closely with the fuel systems and structures departments. We are passionate about developing graduate engineers to prepare our future, and so whilst new graduates will be given challenging objectives, they will also be fully supported in their mission to fully exploit the state of the art knowledge and techniques in aircraft lightning protection and in doing so develop their technical and behavioural competencies.
