Students Visit Tampa Avionics

Avionics is a term that was introduced in the United States in the early 1950s. It describes the systems that depend on and exploit electronic technology in the aviation industry. Its importance cannot be overstated in the modern aviation industry – and is only increasing. Avionics systems include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.

Students currently studying avionics in National Aviation Academy’s Aviation Maintenance Professional program recently visited Tampa Avionics, located at Tampa Bay Executive Airport. They had the opportunity to engage with local experts, see work being performed in a maintenance hangar and learn what Tampa Avionics’ on-the-job atmosphere is like. It was an excellent opportunity for students to see how their training will apply in the industry.
