About Kansas 99S

The Kansas Chapter of Ninety-Nines was chartered in March 1951.

Our Chapter schedules group fly-outs that give us the opportunity to spend time flying, meet new people, and see new places. These fly-outs are a great way for us to share our excitement of flying with each other and the public.

We also hold regular Business Meetings on the first Wednesday of each month. All are welcome and encouraged to come, participate, and socialize. Please contact us to get more details and join us.

Other activities we organize are airport marking, fundraising, promoting aviation to women through flying companions seminars, scrapbooking which goes back to when our chapter was founded, tours to area aviation facilities, and much more.

Who are The Ninety-Nines?

THE NINETY-NINES, INC., is an international organization of licensed women pilots from 35 countries - we currently have over 5,500 members throughout the world.

The organization came into being November 2, 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 for the 99 charter members.

Today Ninety-Nines are professional pilots for airlines, industry and government; we are pilots who teach and pilots who fly for pleasure; we are pilots who are technicians and mechanics. But first and foremost, we are women who love to fly!

Our Headquarters, located at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is home to our large archival records, video oral histories, personal artifacts, collections and memorabilia, and biographical files on thousands of women pilots from around the world. This is also the site of our 99s Museum of Women Pilots.
