If you are a woman pilot or a future woman pilot, we cordially invite you to
visit our regular monthly meeting, to get to know
us, and join our international community of women flyers.
You don't have to have to have your license to start enjoying
the fun of flying. Future Women Pilots (FWPs) are invited to join the Ninety-Nines as an Associate member. Associates come to our meetings and participate in all of our flying and other events. See
our FWP pages for more info.
The major goals of our chapter is to support and encourage all our women pilots
on a personal level, to promote aviation education, to support general aviation, to learn from each other, and to have fun flying.
- More flying: Feel like flying, but have nowhere
to go? Our chapter tries to sponsor at least one flying
event every month. And, if you are a student or don't
want to be PIC, there's almost always a spare seat available.
- Shared experience: Hanger Flying gives us an
opportunity to vent frustrations and to relive victories.
- Aviation education: Our chapter is actively interested
in education both for ourselves and our community, especially
young people. Members have gone into schools on career
days, partnered with other groups for special educational
Monthly meetings often feature educational topics that
help us become better and safer pilots. We organize educational
field trips to FSDOs, museums, anywhere where we can learn
something. We also learn a lot from each other.
- Financial support: As a member of the Ninety-Nines,
you become eligible to apply for one of the Amelia Earhart
Memorial Scholarships for advanced flight training or courses
in specialized branches of aviation. Twenty-three scholarships
were awarded in 2001.
If you are a student pilot, you can apply for the Future
Woman Pilot scholarship - if you are a member of the Ninety-Nines.
See the 99s International site for more scholarship details.
In addition, several other Ninety-Nines chapters offer
scholarships that are only open to Ninety-Nines members.
- Support for the local aviation community: Our
members are informed and involved in many local
aviation activities such as the Watsonville airshow and RHV day. Our annual Pasta Night fund raiser helps raise money for the San Jose State Precision Flight Team. Our work in the community helps build a positive image of aviation and helps to
improve the quality of the aviation community in the present and for the
- Friendship: Most important, our shared experiences
and love of flying form the foundation for lasting friendships.
