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. We belong to the Southwest Section of the 99s, which includes Chapters from Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

The Reno High Sierra 99s is comprised of 52 aviatrixes from all levels of aviation with a diverse set of ratings. Within our ranks we have: students pilots, flight instructors, commercial pilots, (including 1st Officers and a Captain), glider pilots, helicopter pilots, and balloon pilots.

Business meetings are held at 6 PM on the second Thursday of every month (exceptions are usually June, September, and December) at Atlantic Aviation at 655 S Rock Blvd, Reno, NV 89502 (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 fly-out. We also have regularly scheduled social activities and fundraising events for our scholarships. Check out our Events and Calendar pages for more information.

We look forward to meeting you!
