The East Coast Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. (ECCTAI) is the largest and the most active chapter in the national organization. The chapter has approximately 180 members with diverse backgrounds that include active duty and retired military, civil servants, and private citizens from all walks of life. More than 50 Chapter members are Documented Original Tuskegee Airmen, combat veterans of World War II who received their military training at Tuskegee, Alabama. The focus of our work is the District of Columbia and surrounding jurisdictions.  ECCTAI is incorporated in the District of Columbia and has its 501 (C) 3 designation. 

Locally, ECCTAI supports many educational, charitable and philanthropic activities, including the Tuskegee Airmen Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Squadron. Chapter members enthusiastically participate in the annual District of Columbia National Guard Aviation Career Day. This event, held at Andrews Air Force Base, attracts more than 2,000 young students each year and gives students the opportunity to meet and talk with members of the military, airline industry, scientific and educational community, as well the Federal, State, and local government organizations as they present career and employment opportunities.

ECCTAI supports the national goals of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc., to motivate, inspire and stimulate young people’s minds to aspire to, seek and achieve successful careers in the fields of aviation and aerospace. To this end, ECCTAI members devote considerable time, effort and financial resources to capture young minds, to instill the undying will to learn, sacrifice and attain a self-sustaining status with marketable skills. Each year ECCTAI provides more than $15,000 in Education Assistance grants.
