On 22 July the DC 99s organized a Paint Night in order to raise money for a $150 GIFT (Girls in Flight Training) week registration for a Ninety-Nine. The paint night was hosted by WIFA (Washington International Flight Academy) at Gaithersburg Airpark.

The GIFT Academy will be held at KFDK on August 8-14. It is a volunteer-led effort to provide a week of discounted flight training for women and girls. The organizers strive to create a supportive atmosphere where participants can make a lot of progress toward or complete a rating. A DPE will be available at the end of the week and there is a written testing site at FDK as well. There is a hotel deal for out-of-town participants. If you or someone you know could benefit from the GIFT week for any rating, please check out the site

Links to volunteer or register are also on the site.
