Welcome

The mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron is to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel – so their strength of character, courage and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to RISE ABOVE obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

We invite you take a deeper dive to learn more about this remarkable piece of American history and honor these veterans, while being inspired to tap into the ability within yourself to overcome barriers and find success.

RISE ABOVE!
