Just in her mid-20’s, this young lady is literally the first African-American pilot trainee in all of Texarkana, Texas.
Soon to be a commercial pilot and current private pilot license trainee who goes by the name @EbonyVibes on Twitter found out something amazing in the course of her flight studies. According to her flight school and previous records, @EbonyVibes is literally the first African-American pilot trainee in all of Texarkana, Texas.
Texarkana is one of over 200 counties in Texas with a population of over 37,000.
Check out her announcement on Twitter below including an awesome video of her doing her thing, flying thousands of feet above us mere mortals.
I never imagined I would be the first African American to do anything, but God’s plans are greater than my own.— E B O N Y (@EbonyVibes) December 16, 2019
I am the first African American to be trained as a pilot in Texarkana. https://t.co/SshpGBd8nD
A quick scroll through her timeline and it’s clear this young lady has the vision, drive, and a clear goal with what she wants to do in life, to fly airplanes.
Her plan to train as a pilot happened a little over a year ago when she was fed up with her current job and followed her heart.
I woke up wanting to quit my job and I just quit my job.— E B O N Y (@EbonyVibes) October 23, 2018
I’m 23 talented and striving for what God has planned for me.
Just a month later and she already enrolled to get her pilot’s license, making some major moves along the way.

Less than a year later and @EbonyVibes hit us with this epic update which went viral.
The road to become a commercial pilot is, like anything worthwhile, long and challenging, but it looks like @EbonyVibes has the right attitude to get it done.
According to the Texarkana Flying Club and based on her tweet timeline, I can only assume she’s shooting for her private pilot’s license first.
After getting her private license, she can enroll in a commercial airline pilot program where she will need to log at least 1,500 hours of flight time, achievable, on average, in two years. Tuition also costs upwards of $80,000 but she’s already well aware of that.
Idc what I have to do— E B O N Y (@EbonyVibes) September 27, 2019
What city I have to live in
How many jobs I have to get
I’m not taking out a $85,000+ loan to finish pilot training.
Like the rest of Twitter, it’s awesome to find out about young people jumping into training for careers they never thought possible.
I’ll be following @EbonyVibes and her upcoming achievements as they roll in.
I can’t wait to update all ya’ll when she graduates from commercial pilot training and lands some killer job flying around the world.
