The Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots has inducted its new president, Corbi Bulluck, in a virtual ceremony at the 90-year-old 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.
Other officers installed were Terry Carbonell, Vice President (Florida); Cathy Prudhomme, Secretary (Texas); Leslie Prellwitz, Treasurer (Illinois); Directors Monica Randolph-Graham (Texas) and Robin Hadfield (Canada). Returning Directors are Dee Bond (New Zealand) and Minnetta Gardinier (Iowa). Bulluck will serve as president through 2022.
The Ninety-Nines is the oldest international women pilots group, formed in November 1929.
