Ninety-Nines Inducts a New President
Veteran pilot Corbi Bulluck takes over leadership of The Ninety Nines, Inc. as the new president. The Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots has inducted Bulluck, in a virtual ceremony at the organization’s annual convention in July. The convention was planned to take place in Long Beach, California, but the in-person event was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bullock takes over from Jan McKenzie, now immediate past president.
Bulluck is a retired professional pilot and member of The Ninety-Nines’ Kitty Hawk Chapter, who flew for Atlantic Southeast Airlines for six years, ending as a captain on the Embraer EMB-120. She then flew for 20 years for the North Carolina Department of Transportation as its first woman pilot. She still flies as a contract pilot for the state. Bulluck owns a Piper Dakota, and she has participated in five recent Air Race Classic air races, with three top-10 finishes and a first-place title in 2019. She’s logged more than 10,000 hours.
The Ninety-Nines is the oldest international women pilots group, formed in November 1929.
