The National Black Coalition Federal Aviation Employees was founded to provide support and advocacy for African American and minority employees against any type of discrimination in the agency. Affectionately known as NBCFAE, it is the largest employee organization of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and is comprised of over 1,000 members in regions and chapters around the world.
For over 40 years, we have built a nationwide network that is dedicated to promoting equal employment for African Americans, female and minority employees; improving employee-management relations and providing an effective liaison amongst FAA employees and the community at large. In addition, NBCFAE’s positively expands and promotes aviation by providing scholarships, presenting Aviation Careers Education (ACE) academies, supporting intern programs, and community outreach. To date, NBCFAE has distributed over $1 million in scholarships to deserving students nation-wide and over 100,000 youth have been introduced to aviation careers world-wide.
