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 will offer students from the Ferguson-Florissant School District a unique, premier aviation youth outreach program that enables them to obtain pilot’s licenses and start an aviation career path. This effort will be accomplished through supporting the Flight Training, Life Skills, Leadership Development and Educational Planning programs.
Each of the cadets are highly motivated, academically astute (must excel in math & science) and community involved with the aptitude for success in a rigorous aviation program.

About the Program
The Red Tail Cadet Program will be a challenging, total immersion, semi-residential, 6-week program that will develop their skills through classroom instruction, flight simulator training, live flight training, financial literacy seminars, leadership development training and life skills development. The potential Cadets must be highly motivated, academically astute (must excel in math & science), community involved with the aptitude for success in such a rigorous program.
The Red Tail Cadet Program is designed to be more than just a flight program. The intent is to offer a well-rounded program that enables each cadet the opportunity to be more educationally and culturally astute. None of this can be done without a diverse base of partnership support.There are several sponsorship opportunities:• Sponsor a Cadet• Transportation Sponsor
