NAA—Tampa Bay hosted a regional Inspection Authorization (IA) recertification event on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Aviation maintenance technicians are eligible for IA certification after holding A&P certification for three years. Every two years IA is subject to renewal. Eight Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspectors, including NAA’s principle maintenance inspector, were onsite to provide upwards of 100 A&Ps with IA recertification.
It was a pleasure to welcome A&P mechanics and industry partners on campus as we work to build a more robust aviation community in the Tampa Bay Area and beyond.
