Without the generous support of our donors, we would not be able to reach people across the country with the inspirational story of the Tuskegee Airmen. In honoring their legacy, together we are educating people about this important part of history and encouraging them to RISE ABOVE their own obstacles and achieve success.

Today, that support took on a new look, and will literally take to the skies!

While at an event in Pennsylvania, our new Honorary Flight Log, filled with the names of donors and supporters, was delivered to our P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen. This logbook will fly with the Mustang wherever it goes, a constant reminder of the encouragement of our supporters and their faith in our mission. Pilot Alan Miller was on hand to ensure the log will find a secure and safe place inside the aircraft.

The Honorary Flight Log is a unique opportunity to raise funds that fuel our important mission. It also represents the commitments of our supporters to ensure the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen will continue to be shared with people of all ages.

Want to join the ranks? Learn more about supporting the mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron and reserve your spot for a donation of $50 or more in the Honorary Flight Log. Donations to this fundraiser must be made by May each year in order to be included in that year’s printed log. But regardless of when you donate, all annual flight log supporters can be found on our website year round.

The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
