Support Aviation and Vote!

99s are Finalists!

The 99s are thrilled to be a finalist in the 2015 annual Lightspeed Aviation Grant Competition. Selected from a field of hundreds of nominees, they are one of 12 aviation charities competing for grants up to $10,000 Lightspeed will award to the aviation nonprofits receiving the highest Internet vote tallies in its 6th annual grant competition. 

With votes from aviation enthusiasts, the aviation community, members, friends and family, the 99s can win the 2015 grant competition and use the Lightspeed grant to increase their outreach and presence at regional aviation events and publicize and award another Karen Johnson Solo Scholarship at Oshkosh. The scholarship will provide young women between the ages of 16 and 20 with funding for flight training through their first solo and beyond.

99s need your help!

Let's see how many people we can get to try and win a copy of a book for a friend, and give the gift of flight at the same time.

Enjoy the Journey!
