Your Future is the Next Chapter in Their History.

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 on the attainment of an FAA private pilot’s license, with subsequent support for advanced pilot ratings and/or certifications as an aircraft mechanic.
