It has today been revealed that Amazon.com may be looking to launch Amazon prime Air in the UK soon, this comes from a recent job listing that was posted last week with the following responsibilities:
Performing as the Safety Observer during Prime Air flight tests, both outdoor and indoor
Ensuring that all safety policies are followed during flight tests, both outdoor and indoor
Participating in the planning of flight test evolutions to ensure that the planned operations are consistent with our policies and any safety policies placed on the team by regulatory agencies for a particular location
Writing, enhancing and documenting our Flight Safety Policies
Performing safety analyses to ensure our vehicles and operations are safe
Documenting our safety analyses to be used for vehicle and program certification.
As the job is to be based in Cambridge UK, and states that “Flight test experience, manned or unmanned, is preferred,” with “5+ years of relevant aviation experience, either civilian or military, with either manned or unmanned aviation” and “2+ years in a safety-related role, such as Aviation Safety Officer, formal safety training, or Fulfillment Center safety operations,” it is quite possible that the job ad may link to Amazon Prime Air.
Alongside the flight operations engineer, there are also ads for Amazon Prime Air jobs as a site leader, project manager, software developer and an office manager.
If you don’t know what it is Amazon Prime Air will basically be a new drone delivery service that will deliver items direct to users, with the ability to carry up to 2.26kg loads at up to 80kph.
