This year’s event has expanded from information on flight training, maintenance and avionics technicians to include other jobs in aviation, such as accounting, catering, air ambulance, law, aircraft management, and charter services.
There will be speakers presenting information about STEM education, drones, and how to get started in general aviation.
In addition, Jeff Ramsden from the South Florida Business Aviation Association (SFBAA) will speak on how to prepare resumes for aviation positions.
Lunch will be provided compliments of SFBAA.
