Pilots Choice Award
Ninety-Nines in the Final Round of the 2013 Lightspeed Grant Competition!!
Lightspeed Aviation Foundation has chosen the Ninety-Nines as a finalist in the 2013 annual Lightspeed Aviation Foundation Pilot Choice Awards. Selected from a field of hundreds of nominees, the 99s are one of 15 aviation charities competing for grants up to $10,000 that Lightspeed will award to the aviation nonprofits receiving the highest Internet vote tally in its annual grant competition.
In previous years the Ninety-Nines have used Lightspeed Foundation grant money to increase outreach programs and expand our participation in aviation events, support our scholarship programs and expand the 99s’ participation in the EAA Women Soar Program at Oshkosh. We have also been able to increase the number of flight training scholarship awards given to high school girls participating in Women Soar.
Through our scholarship and education programs we are committed to working with other aviation organizations to advance aviation and the growth of the pilot community. With votes and support from aviation enthusiasts, the aviation community, our members, friends and family, the 99s can win the 2013 grant competition and use the Lightspeed grant to establish and market a new solo scholarship. It will provide young women between the ages of 16 and 20 with the funding needed to support their flight training through their first solo.
