On Saturday, January 11th, Admiral Farragut Academy partnered with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to host a Careers in Aviation Expo for people interested in learning more about what it’s like to work in the aviation industry. The program included guest speakers from all over the world who each experienced their own way of finding their passion in the aviation industry. Their careers expanded from NASA astronaut to commercial airline pilot to private charter pilot to air traffic controller to airplane mechanic. We were so pleased that more than 200 people joined us and we had a combination of current and past Farragut families, students from nearby schools, community members, and ERAU and AFA alumni.
