NAA Students Visit Embraer

Embraer arose from a dream to transform Brazil into a country with the latest technology. From those dreams, they have become one of the largest commercial aircraft companies in the world. By stretching the limits of what is possible, and embracing new opportunities, they have accomplished what was previously unimaginable in the commercial, executive, defense and security sectors of aviation.

NAA students at Embraer’s Melbourne location

What is obvious about Embraer is the genuine passion for what they do. Their mission has resonated in the hearts of Brazilians, collaborators and partners. Ten NAA students were recently selected to visit their Melbourne, Florida facilities. They had the first-hand opportunity to see how design, imaginative engineering and technology are used to create new perspectives and solutions at Embraer.

New England Career Fair – March 2018

In the midst of a late-season snowstorm, industry leaders made their way to National Aviation Academy’s (NAA) New England campus for our March Career Fair. Over 648,000 new maintenance technicians will be needed in the aviation industry by 2036 according to Boeing’s 2017 Pilot and Technician Outlook. With indications that the demand for skilled technicians outpaces the rate at which positions can be filled, NAA Career Fairs are designed to put qualified graduates and alumni in front of industry leaders to fulfill the growing needs in aviation.

NAA’s most recent Career Fair took place on Thursday March 15, 2018 at the New England campus in Concord, MA. The demands of the global aviation industry represent a rare and desirable aspect of field: tangible and continuous job growth. NAA focuses solely on aviation maintenance training in order to develop qualified candidates who are ready to embark on careers.

Employers such as CommutAir, Delta, Draken, General Electric (GE), Gulfstream, Panasonic, Pro Star Aviation, PSA Airlines and Pratt & Whitney were onsite scouting students and conducting interviews in March. Our next Career Fair will be hosted at NAA’s Tampa Bay campus. Stay tuned for more details!
