The Katahdin Wings are the Maine/New Hampshire chapter of The 99s. It is also one of three chapters that make up the New England Section, which includes the Eastern New England Chapter and the Connecticut Chapter. The 99s are about flying and friendship, with a focus on education. It is a great support group for a unique portion of the pilot population where a special camaraderie exists. There is a special energy with other women who are all inspired by the love of flying. It also celebrates the history of women's involvement in aviation. The Section Governors publish newsletters to report on chapter and section activities. Click here to see past newletters
The chapter provides various educational missions to be involved in: service projects like presenting aviation classes and outreach to students from elementary through high school and presenting and hosting aviation safety seminars; painting compass roses or airmaking at airports, and fun flying events like flying treasure hunts and poker runs. Some of these events are a source of fundraising that go toward scholarships that range from providing financial aid to students interested in the local summer Ace Camps, to donations to the organization's Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship among others.
