Women student pilots can join The Ninety-Nines as Student Pilot members. To join as a student, you must have a current medical certificate or equivalent document for non-U.S. applicants. You can remain as a Student Pilot  member in The Ninety-Nines for up to three years.

More good news is that by joining as a student you are eligible to apply for a FLY NOW Award, under the auspices of the  Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship Fund Trustees! With The Ninety-Nines, you are in the company of friends. You receive understanding, encouragement and strength. You can participate in 99s-sponsored flying activities, aviation education and community service.

When you receive your license, you are eligible to join as a full member, ready to help others joining as students.
