    First Army Lt. Dina Elosiebo has become the first African-American female pilot for the D.C. National Guard. She earned her wings last month after completing the Initial Entry Rotary Wing Flight School at Fort Rucker, Alabama.

    “This is an extraordinary, historical event for us,” said Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, commanding general of the D.C. National Guard. “We’re extremely proud of Lt. Elosiebo. She’s a fine officer, and now, an Army aviator.”

    Before joining the Guard, Elosiebo received her FAA commercial pilots license and was a certified flight instructor. The history-making pilot can thank the legendary Tuskegee Airmen for helping her make history.
