ACP160 NIFA, Networking, and Recurrent Training

It has been a few weeks since we last spoke and much has happened. As many of you know I was away doing two very important things in my career, giving back and moving forward. By giving back to the aviation community I volunteer as the coach for the flight team at Polk State College.

We recently spent a week in Auburn, Alabama competing in the Region 9 Safecon. What is Safecon? What is NIFA? And how does it affect my career? Well, I’m glad you asked. We will discuss this shortly.


Remember to visit Facebook.com/AviationCareersPodcast to see where we will be and when you will have a chance to meet me or one of our co-hosts. Our next planned event is January 24th to 27th, 2018 at the US Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida. Remember to check facebook since we may have some last minute events pop up.

The new 2018 Scholarships guide will be published soon. One thing we did not expect is how many people like the online directory. We heard your feedback and will be offering an online directory but as a separate website with stronger search capability. Stay tuned for new details. In the meantime, you can still purchase the book online at Amazon and in the iTunes. Store. Visit AerospaceScholarships.com to learn more about how you can purchase the guide.
