Red Tail Cadets - Y22 New Inductees

Reigniting the heroic legacy of young African-American pilots (Tuskegee Airman), the Red Tail Cadet Program (RTCP) seeks to enhance and transform the lives of at-risk youth through aviation education and career path opportunities, so that they may more positively impact their community. The RTCP would offer a unique, premier aviation youth outreach program that enables youth to obtain pilot’s licenses and start an aviation career path. Such an effort can be accomplished through supporting the Flight Training, Life Skills, Leadership Development, and Educational Assistance programs.

The Red Tail Cadet Program is a six-week, residential, immersive flight-training experience, is designed to introduce students to the aviation industry and to develop their skills through classroom instruction, flight simulator training, in-aircraft flight training, financial literacy seminars, leadership training, and life-skills development, with the ultimate goal of setting them on the path towards a career in aviation.
Selected from a pool of applicants from the Ferguson-Florissant School District, the cadets are chosen based on their academic excellence, community involvement, and their aptitude for success in a rigorous aviation program.

Congrats DECA Award Winners!
