Atlanta: The Organization of Black Airline Pilots needs your support during our 27th National Convention.


Please join OBAP an exciting evening of fashion, fellowship and remembrance as we join forces with top European and U.S. designers to host the fashion event of the summer and raise scholarship funds for the Leroy W. Homer, Jr. Foundation.


Event Overview


Hosted by renowned fashion show producer Shayla Simpson, “Raising Horizons” will feature exciting fashions from the world’s top design houses.   Beautiful models, including some faces you may recognize, will grace the catwalk as you gain a sneak peek into emerging fashion trends.  A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Leroy W. Homer, Jr. Foundation. 


The Foundation, launched in May 2002, was established to honor the memory of our fellow OBAP member and September 11th hero through yearly aviation scholarships.
