Tampa Bay Students Explore Experimental Aircraft


Tampa Bay’s 9th term class visited Clearwater Air Park on January 12, 2017. Students were given a tour of the facilities, and were introduced to members of Chapter 282 of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) who are in the process of building an aircraft from the ground up.

EAA Chapter 282 President Bruce Brock guided students on the tour. He discussed a number of experimental aircraft located at the air park and gave an in-depth presentation of his own Van’s RV-7A.

As graduation nears, students are reminded of their passion for aviation and how it will serve them in the industry. The tour highlighted how they might engage in the recreational aviation community – both personally and professionally.
