Air Station Clearwater hosts 3rd annual Coast Guard Naval Aviation Internship

Southeastern Coast Guard News
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater crewmembers held their 3rd annual Coast Guard Naval Aviation Internship with the Naval Sea Cadets and the Pinellas Park High School First Responder Program at the air station, Thursday.

Crewmembers at the air station introduced the participants to naval and civil aviation with on-hands training such as maintenance, piloting and water survival drills.

“This program is important because it gives the cadets exposure to the Coast Guard’s missions while they are still in high school,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Scott Gordon, a crewmember at the air station. “It is a recruiting tool for those interested in serving.”
