Tampa Bay Student Council – December 8, 2016


NAA—Tampa Bay’s Student Council held a meeting on Thursday, December 8, 2016. Sixteen individuals were in attendance, including two new members from 1st term.

Follow-up items included computer upgrades and improvements to Tampa Bay’s hangar. Additionally, students were notified that updates to the main campus facility will be taking place while they are on winter break.

New business included a reiteration of NAA’s hours policy. The policy is prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and has been established so that students are able to complete the requisite number of hours required for licensure.

Lastly, NAA staff went over a physical plan to notify students in the event of localized emergencies, such as severe weather or power outages. Students will be notified as soon as the procedure has been finalized.

The next Student Council meeting will take place on Thursday, January 12, 2017.

Hands-on Training in Tampa Bay


Hands-on training involves active participation rather than theory. It shows that an individual understands a concept and can perform the real-world application of a theoretical practice. At National Aviation Academy (NAA), our aviation maintenance curriculum pairs with hands-on training so that students are able to harness the skills necessary to excel in the field. On December 1, 3rd term students began one of many projects that they will complete before graduating. Watching students with little to no experience evolve into professionals, over the course of just fourteen months, is what it’s all about!
