Ninety Nines return to Warwick for annual picnic and meeting

Ninety Nines return to Warwick for annual picnic and meeting

Poor weather on Saturday, Sept. 6, may have prevented some of the ladies of the North New Jersey Chapter of the "Ninety-Nines" from flying into Warwick Municipal Airport in their own airplanes for the organization's annual picnic and meeting. But that didn't dampen the spirits of those who attended.
"Holding our annual picnic at Warwick Airport has become a tradition," said recently elected Chapter Chair Shannon Osborne, who usually flies her own single engine Cessna 182 to the event. "We'll be back every year, for sure."
The "Ninety-Nines" has been home to women pilots since the early days of aviation.
The world famous pilot, Amelia Earhart, its first president, and 98 other early female aviators established the "Ninety Nines" in 1929.
The organization is an international non-profit association of licensed professional and private women pilots. Full membership requires that the applicant be licensed as a fixed wing, helicopter, balloon or glider pilot. And many of the almost 90 members of the Chapter also have instrument, commercial and other advanced ratings. Some have served as airline pilots or were even former members of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP).
Five years ago, their "Ninety-Nines" display in the Aviation Hall of Fame at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey was completed and open to visitors.

Five years ago, their "Ninety-Nines" display in the Aviation Hall of Fame at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey was completed and open to visitors.
Founded in 1972, the Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey is dedicated to the preservation of New Jersey's aviation and space heritage. The emphasis of the North New Jersey Chapter's display and video presentations is on the role of women pilots in modern times rather than the early history of the organization.
This past year, for example, one of its members, Marilyn Patierno, completed the 38th annual "Air Race Classic," a four day, 2,200 nautical mile flight from Concord, California to Cumberland, Pennsylvania.
Osborne, who served on the ground at each end of the event as a volunteer, reported that this was no easy task since very bad , including icing conditions and tornadoes en route, had forced many of the fliers to drop out of the race.
The annual picnic in September is the Chapter's official kick-off for the year's activities, including one on Oct. 11 at Lincoln Park Airport in New Jersey when the Chapter will host "Pennies-a-Pound."
"As part of our mission to educate and share the aviation experience with the community, we'll be offering airplane rides for 35 pennies a pound to a maximum of $50 per person," said Osborne. "Everyone can enjoy the beauty and exhilaration of a ride in a general aviation airplane."
The North New Jersey Chapter of the "Ninety-Nines" continues to offer scholarships for flight training, which are open to any male or female student pilot with an earnest desire to further aviation achievements.
