Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 to enhance, advance and promote educational opportunities in aviation. From the outset OBAP has focused its greatest emphasis on preparing young people to realize a successful future and highlight the exciting potential available in aviation. To be certain, an aviation oriented group representing African-American and Minority concerns was neither new nor unique. Years earlier the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. and Black Wings in Aviation had been formed with similar goals and both continue to be very active today. OBAP's unique approach to the concept was to build on the progress made in the military and general aviation arenas by expanding the cause within the airline industry. Recently OBAP has expanded its goals to include all careers in aerospace. OBAP has several programs for youth interested in aviation including Project Aerospace and Aviation Career Education (ACE) Academy held in 22 cities across the country and Caribbean. Cheryl Chew is executive director and Albert Glenn is chairman of the board.
