The Federal Government's announcement of support for Bombardier Aerospace last week should generally be viewed as good news for all Montreal aerospace companies, not just Bombardier. In spite of the usual criticisms and complaints, the fact is, many local aerospace companies depend on a healthy Bombardier for survival, just as BA relies on them for ongoing support for their many programs in an increasingly competitive market. The announcement, along with the earlier one by the Quebec Government, should provide a measure of financial, and moral support needed at a critical stage in the game. Unfortunately, once you've made the commitment to take a seat at this particular table, and the cards have been dealt, walking away is usually not the best option. However, for those of us who've been around for awhile, and have short memories, remember that it took Boeing over 10 years before they started to recuperate their investment on the 747 program, -so let's not expect miracles in the coming months. At least now that this particular issue has been taken care of, the government can once again look into some of the other aerospace projects that have been stuck on the back burner for far too long.
One of our responsibilities at ARM Aero Consultants is to keep tabs on up and coming projects in and around the aerospace industry. Whether they be simply interesting or potentially game-changing, what we view as most important from a human resources aspect is that these ventures evolve to the point where they are able to offer stable career opportunities to those that seek them. That said, we would like to point out a new aircraft project that we've recently become involved with.
The company, originally European based, has recently established itself in Canada and their goal, simply put, is to revolutionize their sector of the aerospace industry. The aircraft they've been developing features an innovative propulsion system, state of the art materials utilization, and a unique modular design employing advanced fabrication techniques. This new platform is said to be easier to repair, easier to fly, less expensive to operate, and provides improved safety and reliability margins compared to other competitors in today’s marketplace. Furthermore, the flexibility of their design will permit the company to easily accommodate their client’s requests for a product that will allow them to fulfill different mission profiles.
The company has been in the advanced design stage on this project for a few years now, complete with working proof of concept, and they are now planning to move on to the next phase of the program. We know that behind every great project is a great team, and now that they are planning to put their platform into production they’re looking into the possibility of expanding their little family, and that's where we come in.
As a result of our ongoing discussions with the company, ARM Aero Consultants would like to provide advance notice regarding some of the unique skill sets that will likely be required in the coming months as this exciting new project takes shape. Potential candidates with relevant expertise are invited to inquire about possibilities in such disciplines as:
