About Us

The Palomar Chapter of the Ninety-Nines was chartered in August, 1966, incorporated in October of 1967 and is a part of the Southwest Section of the 99s. This chapter is one of four chapters located in the county of San Diego and one of 46 in the Southwest section where the membership includes licensed women pilots (99s) across five states including California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Hawaii. 

The Palomar Chapter’s membership is diverse in age and background. Our members hold general aviation or commercial ratings. They fly fixed wing aircraft, jets, helicopters, balloons, and gliders. There is an active student pilot’s (66s/Future Women Pilots) mentoring program to support women who are learning to fly. They fly professionally as well as for fun!

Ninety-Nines also reach out to the community by supporting safety seminars for pilots, and aviation education programs for the local community.  Of course, mentoring new pilots, or those working towards a new certificate, rating or career goal, comes naturally as part of the friendship and camaraderie that are part of Ninety-Nines chapters everywhere!

Other chapters within San Diego County include: Borrego Springs, Coyote Country and San Diego
