Help the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) restore the airplane that gave women wings, and inspire young people with the story of America's first female military pilots.
The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) were the first female pilots to fly American military aircraft in WWII. They ferried more than 12,000 aircraft for over sixty million miles - yet their service to our nation went unrecognized for decades. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) has recently discovered an AT-6 training aircraft used in the original WASP flight training program. The CAF will acquire, restore, and paint this historic aircraft, just as it was in 1943. This AT-6 will be featured in our new film RISE ABOVE: WASP, narrated by a three-time Academy Award-nominated actress. The film will be the basis of a nationwide outreach program that educates and inspires young people with the story of the WASP.
