The Legacy

Flight Academy

Is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that conducts character-based youth aviation programs that draw upon the LEGACY of the Tuskegee Airmen. 


Tuskegee Day

Over the next 76 hours we will highlight the L.E.G.A.C.Y. of the Tuskegee Airmen and seek the support of 332 donors to help us KNOW, LIVE, and GROW the Tuskegee Airmen Legacy. ​

African-Americans represent only about 2% of pilots in both military and commercial aviation.

Early exposure to aviation is a significant factor in professional success in aerospace careers. Built on a foundation of the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, the LFA combines quality character development programs and aviation experiences that inspire you to achieve their goals in STEM careers while becoming strong citizens and contributors to society.

"Diversity is essential to our ultimate success in an increasingly competitive and dynamic global environment.”

In order to address the Geo-Political opportunities and challenges of the future, corporations, the US military and individuals must recognize the value and strategic benefit of diversity within their workforce and among their leadership.
