International Organization of Women Pilots
(taken from the 99s website)
Established in 1929 by 99 women pilots to provide mutual support and advancement of aviation, The Ninety-Nines Organization of Women Pilots has continued and expanded that mission. Today, the organization promotes world fellowship through flight, provides networking and scholarship opportunities for women and aviation education in the community and preserves the unique history of women in aviation.
Following in the footsteps of these early 99s, our members are represented in all areas of aviation today. And, to quote Amelia, fly "for the fun of it!".
