The Hubert L. “Hooks” Jones Chapter sponsors the Mile High Flight Program for twenty exciting years. The purpose of the program is to: (1) Educate youth about the vast opportunities in aviation and aerospace through tours and hands on activities. (2) Provide long and short term mentoring for our students. (3) Share the rich history of the Tuskegee Airmen.
Mile High Flight Program has included the following.
- Wings Over the Rockies Aerospace Museum
- Centennial Airport
- Denver International Airport
- United States Air Force Academy
- Metropolitan State Colleges Aviation Department
- CU Boulder Aeronautical Engineering Department
- Buckley Air Force Base
- United Airlines Flight Training Center
- Orientation flights in light airplanes and gliders
The most outstanding students are selected each year and actually learn how to fly. We’ve met with thousands of students, sharing the history and philosophy of the Tuskegee Airmen: Excellence and achievement have no color barriers.
