Volunteers from Corry Field, organized by SMSgt Phillip C. Carter
In an effort to improve the lives of our youth, the Flight Academy is launching a GoFundMe Charity Fundraiser.
We are embarking on a program to acquire more physical space for the Chappie James Flight Academy.
Over the last year we’ve; built an operational classroom wind tunnel, desktop computer system and outfitted the Academy with four additional desktop flight simulator stations (including monitors, flight controls and software).
Our campaign will run from October 1st through 31st.
Thank you in advance for your support and generous Donation.

As Hurricane Sally rolled through our fair City, so many people and businesses suffered damage.
The Flight Academy was one of them.
While we sustained mostly debris spread about the property, there was some damage to our building. The debris in particular was was certainly something that needed to be cleaned up.
On September 22nd, Volunteers from Corry Field came to our Facility to help.
It is with a grateful heart we extend our thanks to the Volunteers listed below.
A very special thanks to SMSgt Carter for making this happen.

The Summer Camp Class of 2019 visited Tuskegee University and the historic Moton Field in Tuskegee Alabama this year during our summer program. The day will filled with history teaching moments as the students learned more about the journey of the Tuskegee Airmen and General Daniel Chappie James Jr. The class picture is underneath the F-4 fighter Jet flown by General Chappie James. The students also toured the Tuskegee Airmen National Park at Moton Field where the story of the famed airmen is told through video with personal accounts from some of the surviving airmen themselves.
We would like to thank the Pensacola Police Department and the Pensacola Tuskegee Alumni Club for sponsoring this trip for the students. They had a wonderful experience as well as the staff.
On March 5th, 2019, the Pensacola Chapter of the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge honored the Chappie James Flight Academy with the American Black Eagle award.
The event took place at the Pensacola Yacht Club.
Board members Mike Griffin (Left), Mike Fowlkes (Right) and staff member Miles Wright (Center) were on hand to receive the award.
While we do not look for recognition this award is a reflection of all the hard work of our team members, supporters and volunteers who believe in this program. We accept this award on behalf of all of you.
Thank you to the Pensacola Chapter of the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for recognizing our contributions to the Pensacola community.
