WELCOME to the Home of …..FRIENDS of Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Inc.
F WELCOME to the Home of the FRIENDS of Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Inc. FTANHS, Inc. is a special organization working with the National Park Service to help preserve the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen and the National Historic site, at Moton Field, a training ground of the Tuskegee Airmen.
T Our MISSION is to assist the National Park Service with its directive to preserve, commemorate and protect the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site by raising funds, drawing public awareness to this true American history, providing community outreach activities, organizing volunteers for special projects, and of course, making new friends for the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site.
AAs Friends of the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Inc., we are dedicated to preserving this true American history on the actual site of this world-famous training. Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama was the only primary flight facility for African-American pilot candidates in the U.S. Army Air Corps (Army Air Forces) during World War II.
HWe salute the bravery and true heroism of America’s first African American military airmen and women training at Tuskegee Institute, now Tuskegee University. These pilots and thousands of their support personnel began a historic journey at Tuskegee that eventually changed the American landscape, bringing a new freedom to the world and shaping our national character.
NWhenever you are in the Southeast US, stop by and visit us at the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site. We are just off I-85 and in between the cities of Auburn and Montgomery, Alabama. Stop by and view the historical artifacts in the museum hangars at the Moton Field Municipal Airport.
SHangar 1 and Skyway Club provide a perspective of what Primary Training at Moton Field was like with a Stearman bi-plane and J-3 Piper Cub on display. Hangar 2 gives a perspective of the Airmen after deployment overseas. A P-51 Mustang, the spectacular WWII fighter aircraft flown by the famous Tuskegee Airmen “Red Tails”, is suspended from the ceiling in Hangar 2.
