The vision of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen Inc., is to provide an accurate historical accounting of documented original Tuskegee airmen (DOTA's) through ongoing public education, aeronautical and engineering scholastic assistance, and preservation of DOTA memorabilia.
The Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. partners with community agencies and programs to foster youth interest in S.T.E.M.(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and provide opportunities in related fields. Organization sponsored events are member supported with a community service objective.
Every year LACTAI donates to the
Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship foundation. Through the foundation, thousands of dollars are awarded to selected youth so that they may further their education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.).
The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black pilots in American military service. They were called the Tuskegee Airmen because they received their pilot training on airfields around Tuskegee, Alabama. The most important of these airfields were Moton Field, where they obtained their primary flying training in biplanes, and Tuskegee Army Air Field, several miles to the northwest of Moton Field, where the airmen received their basic, advanced, and transition flying training.
