Alaska Chapter of the International Organization of Women Pilots

Charter Date: Jan 19, 1954

The Ninety-Nines reach into every corner of aviation.

Each year the chapters sponsor more than 300 educational programs, including flying safety, airport tours, fun flying, and flying companion seminars. The Ninety-Nines also fly air ambulance, blood and medical supplies; help identify airports by air-marking names on runways and roof tops; serve on local, state and federal aeronautics commissions; and promote intercollegiate flying competition. To promote the upgrading of pilot skills and proficiency, the Ninety-Nines operate local and cross-country racing events, the most famous of which was the Power Puff Derby. Each year the Ninety-nines award ten or more Amelia Earhart Scholarships for advanced flight training. Additionally the chapters award numerous student pilots and advanced rating scholarships.
