About BRS Aerospace

BRS Aerospace’s primary business is the design, manufacture, and sale of rocket-extracted whole-airframe parachute recovery systems. These may be for ultralight, experimental, light sport, general aviation, or military aircraft. BRS has been forging the path for this seemingly novel concept for over 30 years.


Project/Design Engineer

Ballistic Recovery Systems (aka BRS Aerospace) is currently seeking a multi-disciplinary engineer to support the mission of the Aviation Engineering Department. This team designs the namesake recovery systems and especially focuses on system-to-airframe integration. A new integration scheme often involves the engineering of new reinforcing structure and/or system mounting components. This position will also be involved in the continuing evolution of the product line - to include parachute, rocket, and activation sub-assemblies. Fundamental understandings of aircraft structures, aerodynamics, flight dynamics, rockets, and manufacturing will be required during these design tasks. Frequent interaction with customers and vendors is to be expected, as is providing technical support to Sales, Quality, Procurement, and Production staff.
