Virtually all female pilots of achievement have been 99s, including: Amelia Earhart (who was our 1st President), Jackie Cochran, “Pancho” Barnes, air racer Louise Thaden, the San Diego 99s own founding aviatrixes Woman Air Force Service Pilot Betty Gillies and record setter/barnstormer Bobbi Trout, along with current members like Space Shuttle Commander Eileen Collins, airshow pilot Julie Clark and World Aerobatic Champion Patty Wagstaff.
