The National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees (NBCFAE) through its Aviation Career Education Academy (ACE) camps has provided leadership, education and guidance to acquaint young people with the potential of finding careers in the air transportation system and general aviation.
The NBCFAE has reached well over 100,000 students nationwide spanning its thirty plus years.
ACE activities include, extended aviation career summer camps, day classes and briefings, trips to airports, air flight to other cities, and visits to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) facilities including towers and centers.
It is at these camps that we provide varying activities that include overnight camp outings trips to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), hands on activity, ground instruction, flight instruction, pilot simulations, seminars, flight certification classes, and much more aviation education.
Students often end the ACE workshops with actually flying a single engine aircraft.
NBCFAE has partnered with learning institutions, Federal Aviation Administration, the Organization of Black Airline Pilots, Tuskegee Airmen, and other aviation groups to encourage students to explore aviation and aerospace career opportunities. Some of our senior students and those who attend on a regular basis have assumed careers in the aviation industry and occupations as commercial and/or military pilots.
