The Katahdin Wings Chapter of the 99s meets monthly at various locations in Southern Maine. Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8pm, plus occasional fly-to Saturday meetings.


Established in 1929 by 99 women pilots, the members of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots, are represented in all areas of aviation today - and, to quote Amelia, fly “for the fun of it!”

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.

Women Interested in Aviation Day



Another successful Women Interested In Aviation event took place on March 7, 2015 at the Sanford Seacoast Reg. Airport. Area Girl Scout troops participated. Here's what their leader had to say: "A huge thank you to Mary at the Women in Aviation Day in Sanford yesterday! She was part pilot, part therapist and got my very nervous daughter up in the air (along with her mom and the GS troop mascot). Not sure my daughter will end up a pilot, but she learned a huge lesson about standing up to things that scare you. She loved it and has talked about little else since. It was a great event- thank you to all who worked so hard to put it on. My Girl Scout troop has decided it's one of their most favorite outings ever." Read more...
