Reno High Sierra Chapter Ninety-Nines
International Organization of Women Pilots
The Reno High Sierra
Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., was founded by 15 women pilots in 1989. Today, the chapter members include private pilots, certified flight instructors, commercially rated pilots and women
simply flying for the sheer joy and pleasure of it all. Many members
have also earned balloon, glider and seaplane ratings. We traditionally meet at 7 PM on the second Thursday of every month at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport Fire Station, 1805 Riley Avenue, Reno (click on the address to go to a Google Map), or you can contact us to find out where we’re flying on our next monthly
fly-in. You’re welcome to come and join the fun!
We are involved in various community events and endeavors locally and fund annual
aviation scholarships for women with our fundraiser efforts.

NOTES ON CATEGORIES
FOR SCORING LISTED ON FORM--Southwest Section (from the SWS 99s chapter chairman's manual)
"Part of the mission statement of 99s International
directs us to "Provide...aviation education in the community." Take a peek at the activities listed on the form
that qualify for "points" when we compete for this award at spring section meeting. Members and chapters who participate
in these varied projects reap immeasurable gratification and "just plane fun" from presenting Flying Companion Seminars,
working with school children, flying local official and educators...and the list goes on. The only problem is that we're
so busy "doing" we often don't record our activities for a whole year.
Active chapters are a lot more interesting and the vitality
NOTE from Lynn: All activities need DATE/NAME OF EVENT/PERSONS ATTENDING. Perhaps if we all keep an Aero Educ. form in our log books, on our calendars, with our rosters, or
some other handy place, we'll be more inclined to fill it out on a regular basis. AND if we start NOW, at the beginning of
the competition year - January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014 - maybe it will be easier. It is very difficult for
the Aero. Educ. chair to compile data at the last minute.
Helpful Tip: KEEP THE SCORE SHEET PAGE IN YOUR LOG BOOK OR A SAFE PLACE AND
ADD YOUR DATES AND ACTIVITIES ON IT MONTHLY,QUARTERLY OR AS YOU DO THEM.
Hopefully, posting the form here on our website will help us all to stay
more current on tracking our activities and lead to a trophy for our chapter!
