About Us

Our Mission

The Ninety-Nines is the international organization of women pilots that promotes advancement of aviation through education, scholarships, and mutual support while honoring our unique history and sharing our passion for flight.

Who We Are

We are a worldwide group of women who, in addition to everything, are pilots. That doesn't mean we own an airplane - but we can fly many kinds of planes!

We fly gliders, balloons, single engine and multiengine planes. Many of us fly jets, some fly military fighters, and a few are shuttle commanders!

We are single, married, parents, grandparents, professional pilots, flight instructors, FBO owners, FAA examiners, and other professionals. Many of us are nurses, teachers, realtors, and other business owners.

Basically, a very diverse, independent group, linked together tightly by the shared love of flying.
