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.

Exciting News!!! Katahdin Wings Chapter Hosting 2018 Air Race Classic Terminus!
June 22-24, 2018

This transcontinental race starts on June 19, 2018 and will finish at Eastern Slope Regional Airport in Fryeburg, Maine on June 22, 2018. The Air Race Classic, is the epicenter of women's air racing. Pilots range in age from 17 to 90 years old. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds including students, teachers, doctors, airline pilots, business owners, professionals and air traffic controllers. Race teams, consisting of at least two women pilots, must fly VFR during daylight hours only and are given four days to make flybys at each en route timing point and then land at the terminus. The race route changes each year, approximately 2,400 statute miles in length with 10 timing points.

Imagine 55 airplanes zooming over Fryeburg for the final high speed low pass timing run and then proceeding to land at Eastern Slope Regional Airport for a few days of relaxation following their four-day intensely competitive race which will start in Sweetwater, Texas, home of the Womens Air Force Service Pilots, (WASPS).

The weekend of June 22-24 will feature, in addition to hosting the racers, a youth aviation day on Saturday, open to everyone in the community, and a Job Fair (contact Mary Build at mary.build@gmail.com for more info).

All are invited to be part of this exciting opportunity to meet women pilots from around the world and to learn more about general aviation and aviation careers. The Air Racers will be staying at the Red Jacket Resort in North Conway NH; and car rentals are available through Enterprise car rental, North Conway NH.
