Hill Helicopters has captured a 56% market share of the global light helicopter market with its HX50 5-seat, modern, high-performance, turbine powered, aircraft which is delivering a reboot of the stagnant general aviation market. HX50 is powered by our own GT50, 500hp twin-shaft turboshaft engine, designed, developed and entirely manufactured by Hill, in Staffordshire in the UK. Hill is a vertically integrated manufacturer meaning that all manufacturing is carried in-house by us in our state-of-art modern manufacturing facilities.
Hill is exceptionally well financed, has sold over 800 aircraft in 56 countries over the last two years, and has an order book of over £320M and growing.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record for technical leadership in the delivery of complex engineered composite vehicles, in aircraft or related industries, ideally in light aircraft, pleasure craft or motorsport. The role will require the candidate to directly lead and supervise all areas of aircraft development within the Hill Group including structural design, analysis & optimisation, system design and integration, testing, validation and certification, along with the development of cost-effective prototype and production processes, quality controls and cost control.
The Hill Group is a privately owned engineering organisation developing and manufacturing both the HX50 Light Helicopter and the GT50 Gas Turbine Engine. We are a pioneering aerospace manufacturer disrupting the market with our ground-breaking new aircraft and modern vertically integrated approach to development & manufacturing. Every element of the HX50 and GT50 are designed and manufactured by us, in-house, at our production facility in Rugeley, Staffordshire, UK.
We employ a fantastically talented, motivated and driven team of professionals. Working as a close- knit flat management structure, we share a common vision for the future of general aviation and a passion to deliver HX50 to our hundreds of global customers.
Hill is currently offering appropriately qualified and suitable individuals the opportunity to become a crucial part of our team developing, industrialising and supporting HX50 & GT50. Few, if any, organisations can provide the levels of professional fulfilment offered by such an exciting, fast-paced and game-changing aircraft development programme and our refreshing new approach to manufacturing. Furthermore, with such a fast-growing organisation, the only limit to your professional development and growth within our company is your own drive and ambition.
We are looking for the people with whom to build our future and we’re ready to invest in you.
General Aviation is the sector of the aerospace industry that produces and operates light aircraft. Since the early 1980’s investment in new product development across the sector has been poor and today the market lacks products that truly meet the expectations of modern owner-operators. Hill is revolutionising the General Aviation market with our new HX50 Helicopter, which combines ‘supercar’ appearance, with unparalleled levels of performance and cost-effectiveness.
