Tuskegee University is readying a new flight school degree program to start this fall, thanks to $6.7 million in federal funding.

The federal dollars were sponsored by Alabama Sen. Katie Britt, who visited the campus last week to review plans for the aviation program with Tuskegee President Charlotte P. Morris and other university leaders. The flight school and degree program, which is awaiting approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, is designed to introduce aviation to a new generation of students at Tuskegee, which has a historic connection to the famed Tuskegee Airmen.

Plans call for students in the new program to earn their flight hours at nearby Moton Field, site of the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site and where the first African American military pilots trained during World War II.
