The Black Pilots of America (BPA) is a 501(c)(3) organization chartered for a variety of purposes. Chief among these are to promote African American participation in aviation and to introduce youth to the different fields in aviation/aviation industries.
The Roscoe Draper Chapter is the local chapter of BPA for the Philadelphia area. Our members are men and women who come from diverse backgrounds. Some have professional aviation experience (military, general aviation, commercial airlines, charter pilots, flight instructors, educators, etc...) some are involved in aviation as an avocation and others are student pilots.
