WE ARE NOW DUEL-ENROLLMENT with EMBRY-RIDDLE UNIVERSITY IN DAYTONA, FL.......YOU CAN NOW EARN COLLEGE CREDITS HERE!
Welcome! I'm Mr. Kaloostian (Mr. K), a retired USAF pilot; I flew the KC-135 aerial tanker and B-1B bomber and now fly general aviation Cessna-172s and anything else when somebody will let me! This is my 11th year teaching Aerospace Technology and I thoroughly enjoy everything about it. There are more opportunities to get into an exciting career in aerospace than you can imagine, and I'm not just suggesting pilot, mechanic or astronaut. I invite you to come learn how to fly airplanes, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and rockets, and research outer space! Take advantage of all we have to offer: field trips,
free airplane rides at the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) "Young Eagles" flights and lots of other unique opportunities.
Here at the MAA you get a unique chance to learn, build, practice, tour and enjoy various aerospace activities and businesses. Our relationships with MacDill Air Force Base, Embry-Riddle University, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aviation Academy (NAA), various
Aerospace Manufacturers and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) open up a world of opportunities to understand the world of military and civilian aerospace.
This year, 2015-20016, Aerospace Technology levels 3 and 4 will be ERAU courses and students will be receiving ERAU courses and credits.
In 2016-2017, Aerospace Technology levels 2, 3 and 4 will be ERAU courses and students will be receiving ERAU college courses and credits. [NOTE: Entering freshmen who have had Aerospace I in middle school will not be able to enroll in ERAU courses until they are in 10th grade]
Traditional and IB students may join the Aeronautical Academy! I encourage you to visit this website then come visit us in room 060 of Robinson High School. If you enjoy getting your feet off the ground, you'll enjoy our Academy!
