The East Coast Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. (ECCTAI) brings together, in a spirit of friendship and goodwill, all persons who share in the aspirations and successes of the men and women who pioneered in military aviation and in the Tuskegee experience. We are dedicated to fostering recognition of and preserving the history of Black achievements in aviation, and to inspiring and motivating young men and women toward endeavors in aviation and aerospace careers.
LEARN THE STORY
Due to the rigid pattern of segregation that prevailed in the United States during World War II, the training of 992 Black military aviators was concentrated at an isolated location.
Each year ECCTAI awards grants and the Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation awards scholarships to assist financially disadvantaged, deserving young men and women, preferably leading to careers in aviation, aerospace, and science technology.Learn More . . .
