The Arabian chapter of the worldwide group will be holding its fifth annual meeting in Egypt in October “We are expecting over 100 female pilots to fly in and this year will be special with the attendance of the president of the Ninety Nines Jan Mckenzie from the United States,” said governor, Alia Twal.

During this meeting the Ninety Nines will commemorate Lotfia El Nadi , the first Egyptian and Arab woman pilot to fly solo after Amelia Earhart. Lotfia was one of the founders of the Arabian Section in 1989.
