North Central Section (NCS)

Who are the 99s?
THE NINETY-NINES, INC., is an international organization of licensed women pilots from 35 countries - we currently have over 4,800 members throughout the world. We are a non-profit, charitable membership corporation holding 501(c)3 US tax status. Our International Headquarters is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Although there are other female pilot organizations in various states and nations, virtually all women of achievement in aviation have been or are members of The Ninety-Nines.

The organization began in 1929 at Curtiss Field, Valley Stream, Long Island, New York. All 117 American female pilots had been invited to assemble for mutual support and the advancement of aviation. Louise Thaden was elected secretary and worked tirelessly to keep the group together as we struggled to organize and grow until 1931, when Amelia Earhart was elected as first president and the group was named to honor the 99 charter members.
