In 1973, the Board of Directors recognized the need for a permanent headquarters building and in 1975 it became a reality. Today, The Ninety-Nines International Headquarters in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has become a recognized repository for resource materials on women in aviation and aerospace. These include archival records, personal memorabilia, oral histories, books, art, films, photographs and biographical files.
The Ninety-Nines have become the recognized source of information regarding women in aviation. Researchers, authors, playwrights, historians and curators come to The Ninety-Nines for information available nowhere else. The Aviation Research Library now contains over 600 volumes.
In 1988, the Headquarters facility was expanded to twice its original size. The second story is the site of our 99s Museum of Women Pilots, housing the library, the oral history video tapes, the Jessie Woods Photo collection, as well as collections from Amelia Earhart, Louise Thaden, Matilde Moisant, Grace Harris, Hazel Jones, Lucile Wright, Jerrie Cobb, Edna Gardner Whyte, Jackie Cochran and so much more.
