EAST COAST CHAPTER
Welcome to the East Coast Chapter Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.
Thank you for visiting the website of the East Coast Chapter Tuskegee Airmen Inc. (ECCTAI). The ECCTAI is the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. organization for the national capital area. We are very proud of our chapter, our members, and our programs designed to educate, motivate, and mentor tomorrow’s aerospace and civic leaders today!
The ECCTAI is a duly chartered US 501 (c ) (3) nonprofit corporation. Every day we are looking for dynamic, innovative and high-minded volunteers to continue and prosper our programs. Share our website with your friends and family via social media.
Our membership consists of Documented Original Tuskegee Airmen (DOTAs) from World War II, former and current US Air Force and other service members, educators, business people and professionals from other areas of endeavor. You do not have to be Tuskegee Airman, a pilot or service member to join our organization.
We conduct one general meeting on the second Saturday of each month at the College Park Aviation Museum in College Park, Maryland from noon to 2:00 p.m. We are all volunteers. We, therefore, invite you to visit with us and find an area of our activities to which you can make a positive difference by donating your time and/or resources.
Every year we conduct fundraisers such as our annual Youth in Aviation and Scholars Breakfast, the General Benjamin O. Davis Golf Tournament at Joint Base Andrews and the Tuskegee Airmen Holiday Fundraiser. Our Youth in Aviation Program and College Scholarship programs help outstanding high school students in their quest for their FAA pilot’s certificate or careers in air traffic control and airframe/powerplant maintenance. In this effort, we seek to perpetuate the legacy of the valiant Tuskegee Airmen who served in the United States Army Air Forces in World War II. Their successes expanded the bounds of freedom and equality for all people, at home and abroad. At a time when space exploration is key to the survival of our species, our scholarship program helps fund activities that promote aerospace and youth leadership development, especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Over the years our chapter has awarded hundreds of scholarships. At this time I wish to express our thanks for all the donations from our members, our benefactors, and our friends that we have received over the years.
Again, we welcome you to the online home of the ECCTAI. We look forward to working with you as we develop tomorrow’s aviation industry professionals, aerospace scientists, academicians, and civic leaders. Join us today!
