Why go there?

Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site commemorates the contributions of African-American airmen in World War II. Moton Field, where the site is located, was the primary flight training site for the pioneering pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. The field is now operated by the National Park Service to interpret the Airmen's history and achievements. Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site was constructed in 1941 as a new training ground for African-American pilots. The first group of pilots, known as the Tuskegee Airmen, trained at Moton Field and went on to distinguish themselves in combat during World War II. Today, the site is dedicated to interpreting their story and educating visitors about their legacy.
