The Negro Airmen International, Inc. (NAI) is dedicated to aviation, public education, and international service in support of personal and professional opportunities for African Americans through aviation. That organization was established by Edward Albertis Gibbs. Mr. Gibbs was committed to breaking the "color" barrier in aviation and to promote participation of Black Americans in the field. NAI was started in February 1967 to help Black people move forward in aviation, to create job opportunities, and encourage more Blacks to go into the field of aviation. Through its national association and chapter program, activities are designed to foster all aspects of aviation including teaching how planes fly, ground school flight training, and careers in aviation. NAI, Inc. annually conducts the oldest Summer Flight Academy in the country, established in 1973. To this date, over 500 students have passed safely through their program. In May of 2003, NAI hosted the largest Aviation Career Education program (ACE camp) at Tuskegee University during their 36th Memorial Day Fly-in at Tuskegee, Alabama.
