Sarasota Avionics 4

NAA-Tampa Bay students visited Sarasota Avionic’s headquarters located on the Suncoast of Florida at the Venice Municipal Airport on Friday, September 1, 2017. They were taken on a tour of two maintenance hangars and learned about dozens of aircraft, including an FBI plane with an inflight infrared scanner. Students were then able to freely interact with the maintenance professionals as they worked on different projects, aircraft and equipment. This engaging and informative site visit is one we won’t soon forget!
