This year we honor
Documented Original Tuskegee Airman
The East Coast Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. (ECCTAI) will host the 28th Annual General Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. Golf Classic on July 20, 2018 at the Courses at Joint Base Andrews. Please join us at this event in support of the chapter's youth programs that include Educational Assistance Grants and Youth In Aviation Program (YIAP). We invite you to be a sponsor investor to help us grow our programs to support more deserving youth.
You can also help us "Perpetuate the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen through historical research, documentation and presentations; motivating youth toward aviation and aerospace careers; and inspiring them towards outstanding achievement and leadership in our democratic society."
The Tuskegee Airmen, recipients of the Congressional Gold Medal and featured in the blockbuster movie “Red Tails,” are true American heroes (who personify excellence) in all that they did. They are a rare group of individuals who fought for the right to serve their country in a time of need. As America’s first African American military Airmen, they proved that Blacks have the intellect and courage to operate complex machines in stressful situations. Their successes proved that America is much stronger when all its citizens are allowed to contribute to the best of their abilities.
ECCTAI is the largest and the most active of over 50 Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. chapters that make up the national organization. Each year, our chapter provides $15,000 in educational assistance grants to college students in need of tuition assistance as well as over $20,000 toward aviation classes in an effort to motivate our next generation of aviation pioneers through aviation experiences.
