Our team at CfAR consists of research engineers, Transport Canada certified RPAS Operators, as well as PhD and Masters level students from around the world. CfAR also supports many undergraduate co-op students each year, providing a dynamic and supportive environment for students interested in the aerospace industry. Many of our co-ops have returned for multiple work terms or transitioned into full-time roles since our projects offer exposure to both academic and industry.  Currently there are 40 research engineers, graduate students and undergraduate students at CfAR.

Many of our co-op students have gone on to work at companies including NASA, Leonardo Aerospace, and DLR Aerospace center and more.
