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.
