Miami, Florida / Watson Island 19th June 2010: As the old saying goes that if there is a will there is a way and that was what occurred at the Miami Sea Plane Base on Watson Island on 19th June 2010. The vision that Benny Benitez, Founder and CEO of the 94th AeroClaims-Aviation Consultant Group in linking the historical aviation past with the future of "Miami Aviation" came true.
In the same fashion and with the endeavor spirit that Juan Trippe, Glenn Curtis and George T. Baker had when they were creating new ideas and changing the course of Miami aviation and who all at times were told that it would be impossible and that it can't be done was in fact done by each man achieving their specific goals and dreams in aviation.
One who always has admired Juan Trippe, the Founder of Pan American Airways for the vision he had, his business skills and the strength to go up against the odds, Benny, who first job in aviation was oddly enough with the original Pan Am back in New York until the end of the airline in 1991, and whose childhood neighborhood back in Brooklyn, New York is a mere few blocks away from where Juan Trippe is buried, invoked the spirit of forging ahead with a vision that would have made Juan Trippe proud.
Benny's vision was to link the past with the future and that has come true with the establishment and kick off of the Summer 2010 paid internship program for the first of Six (6) students from the George T. Baker Aviation School.
The students shown above are being called by Benny as "The Pioneers" as they will travel back in time to learn as to how to work and maintain an original 1941 Grumman Goose as their first ever aviation job, so that they could forge and commence their future within the industry. \
In a statement that Benny made to Roberto Gomez, the Sea Plane Base Manger after he advised the above students that their internship shall commence on Monday 21th June 2010 was "I wonder if Juan Trippe is saying somewhere "See that is what a "Pan AM Man" can do!
