Student Employment in the aerospace sector

Thanks to programs such as the Canada Summer Job (CSJ) programs, we have been able to employ several students to support the Foremost UAS Test Range operations during the summer months.

These local high school and University students are provided opportunities to learn about the RPAS operations conducted on the Range. Throughout the summer, students complete training and skill development related to RPAS operations:

  • Training
      • RPAS Basic Operator’s certificate;
      • Certified 1st Aid/CPR Responders
  • Perform Visual Observation (VOs) for client RPAS operations;
  • Communication on aircraft band radio frequencies;
  • Assist with setup and operation of Range instrumentation used in data collection of flight data;
  • Establish the Remote Operating Centre to support client RPAS flights;
  • Maintaining the Aerodrome grounds, hangar, and facilities.
