The mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron is to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel – so their strength of character, courage and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to RISE ABOVE obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

The CAF Red Tail Squadron’s RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit and P-51C Mustang travel 9 months out of the year, crisscrossing the country to deliver this inspirational message. Watch this video to see how school children have been empowered by learning about these fine American heroes, and the enthusiasm educators have for our educational outreach efforts.

As the CAF Red Tail Squadron members got to know the real Tuskegee Airmen, they learned many things from the Airmen’s stories about the war and their successful lives afterwards. The Airmen’s experiences are the foundation for the six guiding principles of the Squadron’s RISE ABOVE educational mission.
