BEDFORD, Mass., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- From Friday August 15th, through Sunday August 24th, the National Aviation Academy New England (NAA-NE) will be represented, at the Marshfield Fair. This is NAA's first appearance at the Marshfield Fair, and will be an experience filled with fun and excitement for visitors of all ages.
The Academy's sponsorship at the fair is one driven by a desire to give back to the communities that have allowed the school to prosper in New England for decades.
Laurence Huntley, Senior Vice President of the National Aviation Academy – New England, and resident of Marshfield, said, "We are delighted to bring the National Aviation Academy to the South Shore and support the Marshfield Fair. Our students come from across New England and the USA, as well as other countries. There is a great demand for FAA Certified Aviation Maintenance Technicians in the Aviation and related industries, and companies from across the country and locally, such as Cape Air, hire our graduates. We are delighted that Cape Air are going to join us on Children's Day here at the Marshfield Fair."
NAA will be the corporate sponsor for Children's day, on August 21st, where a special aviation toy will be made available to all children who visit the NAA tent this day. Spectators are invited to stop by all week. NAA's Robinson-22 Helicopter will be available to take photos with, and plenty of fun prizes (including two Matco-Tool prize packs) will be given away. Visitors to the NAA tent will also have the opportunity to speak with faculty and staff to learn more about becoming an Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) and the program offered at the academy.
National Aviation Academy (NAA), formerly East Coast Aero Tech, has been training aviation professionals at Hanscom Field, in Bedford, MA since 1932. The primary mission of NAA New England is to prepare students for employment in the aviation industry as Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMT).
Today's airplanes and jets continue to evolve with new systems both mechanically and electronically. Some of the latest commercial airliners have progressed past sheet metal to a lighter composite and the analog gauges in the cockpits have been replaced with large touch screens. It is important for technicians in the field to understand all components of the aircraft. This skill set and knowledge make you more valuable to your company.
