Companion (CRAeS)

Companionship is granted to those who are of valuable service to the profession of aeronautics, engaged in related professions with equivalent qualifications and experience as Fellows but who do not qualify for that grade.

An example of a Companion would be senior executives moving into the industry from other sectors later in their careers.
