SAMAD Aerospace continues to grow its team with the appointment of two aircraft design engineers.

Both Skif Dobney and Natasha Marples are recent graduates of Cranfield University which is at the forefront of postgraduate education in aerospace engineering.

Skif Dobney has already been working part time at SAMAD Aerospace around his studies and he is pleased to now be part of the team full time, he said:

“During my work placement at SAMAD Aerospace I assisted the engineering team with particular focus on the design of the fuselage and now I am looking forward to working alongside them as we continue the development of the Starling jet aircraft and the electric Starling Cargo aircraft.”

Natasha Marples said:

“I am very interested in the design of airframe systems and systems modelling, as well as working with greener solutions for aviation. In my new role at SAMAD Aerospace, I am looking forward to working on the design of SAMAD Aerospace’s Starling jet aircraft.”

Dr. Seyed Mohseni, ceo of SAMAD Aerospace, added:

“As a Company we continue to have a strong working relationship with Cranfield University and over the years a number of our apprentices have been Cranfield students.  I myself am a Cranfield University graduate with an MSc in aerospace propulsion as well as an MBA and doctorate in gas turbine technology.”

The team of experts in aerodynamics, aircraft design and propulsion systems are working together to develop a range of aircraft that will “redefine” the air travel experience.
