Experience at Coop

During my first week of coop I realized the big difference in experience and knowledge I had compared to regular workers. Quiet honest, it was frustrating. I thought I would be the one responsible of photocopying, scanning or printing stuff (since I was clueless on the software being used or what was going on in general). But today, in my last day at Gulfstream Aerospace and after 4 coop rotations, I feel proud of how much I was able to contribute to the development of the aircrafts and the amount of experience I acquired during this period.

Since the beginning I was introduced to the secret project (when the G650 was not announced yet) and trained about corporate system and other programs and applications. By the end of my rotations I had helped analyzing and generating aerodynamic data, designing features of the cockpit and even developing software for the flight simulator of the aircraft, far from what I had expected at the beginning. I still have a long way to go before I have the experience to take greater decisions for the company, but the coop program has certainly been a great way to begin. Then, when I was invited to events like the recognition of the G650 development team, I realized what my real roll as coop was and how important my contribution was.
