A more equitable new-pilot pipeline
In preparing its students for the future of flying, the Chicago organization Tuskegee NEXT – named for the esteemed Black military airmen – also represents a small part of a growing effort to supply a new wave of qualified pilots as many in an aging workforce reach retirement age. In an industry where 3.4 percent of pilots are Black, many realize that inclusion efforts are key considerations in filling this important workforce pipeline. Meet Jaylen Bush, a young pilot whose career and life goals this organization is bringing into reach. Produced by Ashley Lisenby.
