The formation of the Tuskegee Airmen in 1941 forever changed the path of aspiring African-American aviators. Now, a donation of a Sikorsky, believed to be an S-76, is helping the Trowell-Harris Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen continue that legacy. The helicopter, from an anonymous donor, was used to help launch RedTail Flight Academy in New York.
RedTail Flight Academy will allow high school graduates to earn commercial pilot certificates with multi-engine and instrument ratings within 10 to 12 months. In addition to flying, the program will serve as exposure to other facets of the aviation industry.
“An appealing aspect of the program is that it’s all-encompassing—it will teach students all about aviation, from A to Z,” said Michael McCafferty, v-p Northeast of Guardian Jet, who worked closely with this project.
