(Northside ISD – Stevens HS)
The Alamo Area Aerospace Academy was an exceptional experience. The instructors always covered the material well and gave us unparalleled guidance and assistance. Through the program I took advantage of internship opportunities at the 433rd Airlift Wing at Lackland Air Force Base and at Gore Design Completions Ltd. I gained invaluable experience performing preventative maintenance on the C-5 cargo planes at the 433rd and I also got to successfully remove thrust reverser actuators from Airbus planes and take other vital maintenance measures on huge planes like the Boeing 777. I highly recommend the Aerospace Academy to anyone interested in the aircraft industry or even the skilled maintenance industry in general. I am currently in a prestigious internship with Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas that I discovered through the Alamo Colleges and I definitely feel that the Aerospace Academy thoroughly prepared me for success with this new program I am in.
