Monday, August 21, 2017, was just another day at AEA international headquarters in Lee's Summit, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City. What started as a cloudy, rainy morning gave way to perfect weather for viewing a solar eclipse at precisely 1:08 p.m. CDT, making it “totality awesome.”
Students attending the first day of the AEA’s Avionics Installation and Integration Training Course were treated to a free solar eclipse as part of their classroom experience. This sold-out class began three days of instruction as the moon’s shadow raced across the Show-Me State at 1,900 miles per hour. It was the first time since Aug. 7, 1869, or more than 148 years, since a total solar eclipse cast a shadow on the state of Missouri.
Oh yes, about the class. You can learn more about the Avionics Installation and Integration Training Course at www.aea.net/Training/courses/AII/. Please note that future classes do not include a free solar eclipse -- this was a one-time offer.
