We often get asked if our company name came from the famous Redtail Squadron of World War II. Our company was named after the red-tailed hawk, the largest hawk in the hawk family, which is prevalent in our region. The “Redtail Squadron” were America’s first Black military pilots along with their support personnel. They are best known for their extraordinary efforts in the air war of World War II, and for challenging the stereotypes that had kept Black Americans from serving as pilots in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Redtail Air is proud to recognize these brave and fearless aviators.
