The Philadelphia-based Roscoe Draper Chapter of the BPA (http://roscoedraper.net) is sponsoring this events. A little about Roscoe Draper Roscoe Draper is best known for being one of 10 black instructors who taught the illustrious Tuskegee Airmen to fly during World War II. During that time, He was given the nickname "Coach" from the "Red Tails" he instructed who admired his demanding but inspiring teaching style. That well-deserved approbation stuck with him through a long lifetime of teaching aspiring black aviators, as well as anyone else who sought out his counsel. After helping break the "color barrier" during WW II, he worked for the US Postal Service and the FAA in several capacities, including Pilot Examiner and Accident Investigator. Throughout those years, Draper taught many students to fly, with a focus on encouraging more black men and women to seek careers as pilots. In fact, Draper remained an active Flight Instructor well into his nineties and his passion for sharing the gift of flight with future generations of aspiring pilots of all races remains strong as he approaches his 103rd birthday.
