Let's Fly Now!

On the morning of October 12 the Colorado Chapter will host our first Let’s Fly Now!

Let’s Fly Now! is an opportunity for 99s and other volunteer pilots to share their passion for aviation and inspire a new generation to: EXPLORE the wonders of aviation; DISCOVER the magic of flight; and IMAGINE the possibilities for their future.

The Colorado Chapter is hosting Let’s Fly Now! at Cutter Aviation at Colorado Springs airport. Let’s Fly Now! is a FREE introductory flight program. Volunteer pilots will provide their plane, fuel, and time to take females of flying age on their first flight and show them the joys of flying. (Young ladies, young gentlemen, women and men will also be welcome for a first flight.)

We would love your help and involvement for this event.

  • We are looking for additional volunteer pilots. Please support this event by contacting pilot groups and individuals. A press release document that you can use with any group or agency is attached to this email. Sign up contact: Lydia Baldwin. Deadline for pilots to sign up: October 1

  • We are also looking for passenger participants who would like to take an introductory flight. Please support this event with your ideas and connections to find passengers. A limited number of spots are available for participants. Passengers or a parent/legal guardian will be required to sign a waiver of liability form prior to participating in a flight.
