Dear Ms. Covington:
I am an engineer with expertise in designing, developing, and modifying commercial- and consumer-grade remote aircraft. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the aerospace engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Valar Flight, Inc.:
- Expertise in AutoCAD/CADD, structural design, advanced calculus & trigonometry, thermodynamics, propulsion, and guidance control systems.
- Aptitude for analyzing and upgrading the aerodynamic performance of aircraft and construction materials.
- Extensive knowledge of state and federal aviation guidelines and protocols for planes and aerial surveillance craft.
As an intern with Coltorp Aviation, while responsible for producing 3D imaginings of aircraft components, I gained extensive experience in studying and modifying mechanical aspects of flight hardware, flight support systems, and ground support systems. Then, as a junior mechanical engineer with Bell Avionics, Inc., I spearheaded a design team that redesigned the company’s drone fleet. My goal was to incorporate new composite materials to reduce production costs while increasing the energy efficiency and maneuverability of commercial drones. My team’s successful efforts led to a 35% reduction to the weight of completed drones and a 21% reduction in production cost. As your aerospace engineer position requires management and design expertise similar to mine, I believe I would serve Valar Flight, Inc. well in this role.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my aerospace engineering experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
