Aviation Events and News

Much of The Ninety-Nines’ activities revolve around getting into our planes and just having fun. The First Canadian Chapter of the 99s plan a monthly flight event, often to airports to visit local attractions, aviation museums, and, of course, restaurants, guest speakers, an annual Ladies Fly-In Tea, Poker Runs, Air Rally’s and any air show is always a good excuse to go flying.

Mark your calendars.
If you are able to help at any of these events, contact robin@firstcanadian99s.com
