 The Rio Colorado Chapter of the Ninety-Nines aviation club is part of an international group of female aviators rooted in the history of, and with traces back to, Amelia Earhart. We are a chapter of The Ninety-Nines, International Organization of Women Pilots. As a licensed woman pilot (current or not) you are invited to become a part of our legacy as the first and only international organization of women pilots. The Ninety-Nines are a positive force in the aviation community and we invite you to partake in all that we can offer. Please take a few moments to look around and get to know us
