Celebrating NAA’s October 2019 Aviation Maintenance Graduation in Tampa Bay!

Graduations are the culmination of the hands-on, technical training that students undergo while at National Aviation Academy (NAA). To celebrate the distinct achievements of our students, NAA—Tampa Bay hosted a graduation ceremony on October 29, 2019, at Largo Central Park in Largo, FL. Family and friends gathered to celebrate with those who completed NAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) and Aviation Maintenance Professional (AMP) programs.

Awards + Achievements

During the ceremony, students who exhibited outstanding achievements were honored with specialized awards. Multiple students won attendance awards. Team 8 whose members include Christopher Benedetto, Fabian Cruz-Medina, Ariel Cusido, Daniel Hodjaian, William Landes, Emilio Medina, and Joshua Wainscott, won Top Powerplant Team AND Top Airframe Team. AMP Top Tech was awarded to Yarl Bainathsah and AMT Top Tech went to Blenvenido Barthelemy. With the highest GPA of the AMT program, Russell Lowery was named valedictorian.

Graduation is only the beginning. We can’t wait to see how these newly-minted A&P maintenance technicians will use their technical training in the aviation industry, their careers, and beyond!
