NAA Attends the Great New England Air & Space Show!

NAA recently attended the 2018 Great New England Air & Space Show at the Westover Air Reserve Base. Westover is the nation’s largest Air Force Reserve base, and is home to more than 5,500 military and civilian workers. It was the perfect place to house this two-day event that was attended by an estimated 63,400 people from July 14-15, 2018.

Air Force Thunderbirds headlined the event. It was the first time in ten years that the Air Force’s official aerial demonstration team performed at Westover! Static displays of current and historic military aircraft, various other aerial demonstrations, and industry-specific companies and services were also onsite.

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.
