The Red Tail Scholarship Foundation (RTSF) awards funding, provides mentorship and resources to minority high school and college students that are motivated to pursue careers in the aviation industry. Initial support is focused towards attainment of an FAA private pilot’s license, with subsequent support for advanced pilot ratings and/or certifications as an aircraft mechanic.
In addition to applying for this highly competitive program, we strongly urge potential students to get involved with other aviation programs and organizations. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, EAA Young Eagles, Civil air Patrol, chapters of the Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. and Black Pilots of America; see our Legacy Partners page for more information.
