Making things fly

In my job I want to be a person who enables things to fly

I’m interested in everything about aircraft. I have a private pilot’s licence and fly during my free time with single-engine-piston airplanes. In my job, I want to be a person who enables things to fly. I’m motivated by managing the complexity of aeronautics in combination with quality standards to satisfy our customers in a professional way.

Entering Airbus as a student

Oliver works as a development engineer for rotor blades

My early goal was to get into Airbus as a student. So, during my studies I was doing yearlong internships at Airbus Defence and Space in Ulm. My task was to develop a process for a high-temperature missile coating. One year later, I joined Airbus Helicopters for my diploma thesis.

I planned these lengthy interships in order to join Airbus as soon as I completed my studies. And at the end of my diploma thesis, I got the chance to begin as a development engineer for rotor blades. I am very thankful for the opportunities to experience two Divisions of Airbus and to be able to join Airbus Helicopters once I completed my studies.
