UCalgary, SAIT receive federal funding to grow aerospace industry


The Government of Canada recently announced an investment of more than $4M for two projects that support the growth of Calgary’s aerospace industry. The University of Calgary will receive over $2.5M to establish the Aerospace Innovation Hub. The hub will provide startups and small- to medium-sized firms in the aerospace industry with development support, prototyping services, and access to testing equipment. The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology will receive over $1.4M for its remotely piloted aviation training centre for heavy-lift drones training, maintenance, and certification. Together, the two projects are expected to create nearly 100 jobs and train 160 participants.
