The Ninety Nines

The Ninety Nines

The Aviation world, as with numerous other aspects of the world, has many various ?firsts?. For example the first to fly and airplane: Orville Wright. The first Jet flight: Robert Stanley. The first to fly Mach 1: Charles ?Chuck? Yeager. Leonardo Da Vinci (coincidently the first aviation enthusiast) said it best when he stated that, ?Nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first known.? Unfortunately the birth of aviation did not come at a time when it was appropriate for a woman to fly a plane (therefore never knowing flight), so in turn most of the very significant ?firsts? had already been claimed by men. When the first woman got to ?know? a plane it was not something that she ?hated? but ?loved?. But something that she and many other pilots would come to know and have an immense amount of love and devotion for, despite sabotage, ridicule, hard work, and all while maintaining the composure and duties of a lady. Leading to one firsts that could only be claimed by women: The first club, support group, and educational organization for women all in one: The Ninety-Nines.
