Katahdin Wings Chapter of the 99s

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 recent 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.



The Lightspeed Foundation has supported The 99s and the Amelia Earhart Scholarship with $10,000 in grants for the past three years. The 99s was nominated again in 2013 and once again was voted to receive a donation. This year the grant will be used to establish and market a new solo scholarship, which will provide young women between the ages of 16 and 20 the funding needed for flight training through their first solo.
Please VOTE FOR THE 99s for 2014! HERE

Lightspeed produced a wonderful video highlighting The 99s and the scholarship
