THE NINETY-NINES, INC.®, is an international organization of licensed women pilots from 44 countries - we currently have thousands of members throughout the world. We are a non-profit, charitable membership corporation holding 501(c)(3) U.S. 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.
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!
The Austin Hill Country Chapter of the Ninety-Nines (originally named, Austin Chapter) was formed on August 22nd, 1964 by 15 female pilots in the Austin, TX area. Our group has participated in the Ninety-Nines tradition of airmarking at airports in the local area, partnered with local Girl Scouts and EAA chapters to teach and mentor youth, and so much more to promote the love of flight.
