Aviation Maintenance Competition 2016 – Tampa Bay


On Saturday, January 16th, National Aviation Academy’s Tampa Bay campus hosted its fifth annual Aviation Maintenance Competition. Students were broken up into teams of five and were required to complete various maintenance challenges.

Events in the competition included a fluid line event, composite event, pitot static event, safety wire event, cylinder remove and replace event and a weight and balance event.

A total of 12 teams competed. Judging was based on accuracy and how fast each team completed the events. At the conclusion of the competition, nine students were determined as the top scorers.


Individual results are as follows:

1st Place: Joshua Spradlin

2nd Place: Daniel Hamilton

3rd Place: Nicholas Sauls

4th Place (tie): Steve Charles & Gregory Rhoden

5th Place (tie): Michael Goyette, Chris Salup, Andrew Yarley & Leonel De Brito

Congratulations to our students on a job well done! These students in addition to six others are still in the running to be considered for the team we will send to Dallas to compete in the Aerospace Maintenance Competition in April!
