Breaking Barriers: LIFT Academy and Tuskegee University Partner to Propel Dreams of Aviation

LIFT Academy – a premier pilot training program founded by Republic Airways Holdings, in partnership with Tuskegee University, embarks on training the next generation of aviators at the historic site of the Tuskegee Airmen, the pioneering flying unit in the U.S. military. Located in Tuskegee, Alabama as a nationally ranked historically black university, Tuskegee University is dedicated to nurturing and challenging students to grow to their fullest potential.

Founded to create opportunities for those who dream of being a pilot, LIFT Academy has thrown the hangar doors wide open for men and women who thought becoming a pilot was simply not within reach. Together, LIFT Academy and Tuskegee University will help close the opportunity gap for becoming a pilot so that students can realize their potential and pave the way for their successful careers.

LIFT will invest in flight training at Moton Airfield, allowing students to train on LIFT’s signature fleet of training aircraft. Through this program, students will undergo pilot training alongside academic programs to advance their educational journey.

LIFT Academy and Tuskegee University will share co-branded livery to mark this exciting chapter in aviation history. Stay informed about the exciting new partnership between LIFT Academy and Tuskegee University by reading more here.
