TEXAS A&M MARITIME CADET COMPLETES INTERNSHIP
The Canaveral Pilots recently hosted Texas A&M Maritime Academy Cadet Mike Silva for an internship. Silva observed pilots on transits of Port Canaveral aboard many of the different types of vessels that call at the port including car carriers, cruise ships, tankers and bulk cargo vessels. He received briefings on different elements of ship-handling during harbor transits and docking/undocking maneuvers. Silva is currently a senior at the Texas A&M Maritime Academy. He is from Orlando, Florida and has previously participated in career shadow opportunities with Pilots in several Florida ports.
