We’re down to the wire.

History teachers are introducing World War II curricula and Black History Month is coming up right after the Holidays. As a result, we are working hard to get our TAKE OFF FOR FUN Teacher Kits into those teacher’s hands.

The reason is simple…

Most kids today need a contemporary role model in their lives … Not the rappers, entertainers, and professional athletes they are turning to.

We have pulled together a list of history teachers in high-minority enrollment schools. We’re all set to contact them.

We just need to be able to cover the costs of sending them Teacher Kits.

Here is a picture of children showing off the different items that are included in the kits. I wanted to remind you of the contents.


Our online team has reported that we’ve received $4,650 in online donations since we began this campaign… We’re so close to our goal of raising $5,000 to begin offering TAKE OFF FOR FUN Teacher Kits to teachers at no cost to them. Hitting this goal will cover kits and shipment to 84 different high-minority enrollment schools.

Will you make your most URGENT, secure donation below to help us with this campaign and get us to our goal of $5,000?






I don’t want to have to turn away a single teacher. They don’t have large budgets or disposable income. Many have struggled to find the resources to properly teach their students about the Tuskegee Airmen as it is.

This is why I need you. We urgently need help funding these kits so that we can get them in the hands of teachers ASAP.

The interest is there. The kits are popular. So is the interactive iBook which will keep students busy for hours on their iPads.

Thank you again for all you do for the cause. I look forward to shaking your hand at the next air show!

Keep your Speed Up,





Bradford Lang

CAF Red Tail Squadron Leader
