Amelia Earhart | The Ninety-Nines
History of the name: The Los Angeles 99s
On November 2, 1929, an organization of women pilots assembled to further the advancement of aviation in a time when there was little acceptance for women in aerospace. In 1931, Amelia Earhart was elected the first President, and the group selected the name "Ninety-Nines" to represent the 99 charter members. Membership was immediately opened to other women as they became licensed pilots. The Ninety-Nines survive today as a professional organization for thousands of women pilots.
