Who We Are

Our Creed

“We are thankful for this country in which we dwell and for the friendliness that unites us. Let us live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; place character above appearance; work earnestly; speak kindly; act sincerely; and have the welfare of our club ever at heart.”

Clipped Wings® provides an opportunity for current and former United Airlines, Capital and Continental Stewardesses, Hostesses, and Flight Attendants to support the National Charity, Special Olympics, and organizations working with persons with developmental disabilities, amateur sports and provides an opportunity to serve in many other philanthropic projects in their communities.

Clipped Wings® operates as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and adheres to the policy of being nonpolitical, noncommercial, nonsectarian and nonpartisan.

Also, we visit, as a group, various places of educational and/or philanthropic value.


Some of our Seattle members looking forward to the Special Olympics USA Games, where members from all over the country will join in volunteering.

SAN chapter visits the Surf Museum! These gals go everywhere and dress for the occasion.



We reminisce about flying days, renew friendships, laugh, make new friends and support each other.

Every year wherever United flies across the world, they sponsor “Fantasy Flights” which take Foster Children or children with special needs up in an airplane for an hour flight. They land at the “North Pole” created by volunteers from all departments of UAL. Clipped Wings participates too in many cities. Here are members from Chicago, O’hare, Los Angeles and Orange County helping out. We love this activity.
