Santa Maria Valley Chapter 99s
Welcome to The Ninety-Nines
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!"
The Santa Maria Valley Chapter of The Ninety-Nines was chartered in
1988. Members of our chapter mainly come from the Five Cities area,
Lompoc, Solvang and Santa Maria areas. Our monthly chapter
meetings are open to all members and guests and are normally held
on the fourth Wednesday evening of each month. We meet in
members' homes, hangars (in good weather), restaurants and
occasionally at the Santa Maria Museum of Flight.
If you are a woman pilot or would like more information about women
aviators in our area, we invite you to join us for a meeting.
