Fly "for the fun of it!"

Fly “for the fun of it!”  That’s what Amelia Earhart always said back when she and 98 other women aviators founded the 99s in 1929.  There’s something magical about taking flight!  Something that lifts us out of our lives, away from our roles as wives, mothers, daughters. Flying allows us to breathe again and gain some perspective.

Our mission has always been to inspire women to fly.  We do this primarily by providing scholarships to allow new women to learn to fly.  We also provide a social club with classes and seminars to learn about and share our love of flying.  Our chapter also teams up with sister 99s charters to plan the International Conferences.

Feel free to come check us out!  Click here to find out more about our organization.  It’s still cool to be brave!
