                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 the Cirrus.  I have been teaching for eight years and I thoroughly enjoy aviation and space.  I invite you to come learn how to fly, build/launch 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 opportunities.  
                This year, 2013-2014, we'll continue to use LEGO MINDSTORM NXT robots acting as space probes and BLADE electric helicopters for our helicopter aerodynamics unit.  Our AEROKNIGHTS Club is a fun model rocket club.  Aerospace Technology IV students will be learning the Computer-Aided Design Program, SOLIDWORKS, and receiving a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) industry certification.  This class is open to anyone...no Aerospace Technology prior classes required!  Our goal is to gain a 3D printer to "print" the SOLIDWORKS aerospace parts, e.g. wings, fuselage, etc.
                Here at the MAA you get a unique chance to learn, build, experiment, tour and enjoy various aerospace activities and businesses.  Our relationships with MacDill Air Force Base, the National Aviation Academy (NAA) and the EAA open up a world of opportunities to understand the world of military and civilian aerospace.  
                Traditional and IB students may join the Aeronautical Academy!  I encourage you to visit the website then come visit us in room 060 of Robinson HS.  If you enjoy getting your feet off the ground, you'll enjoy our Academy!
