SBC – Dec 10th – Major Don Philip of 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron

Hi all,

Well December is here and the Christmas season fast approaching.  This is our last meeting for the year and once again is the opportunity to network with your friends and business associates before Christmas when many of us are entering into one of the busiest times of the year.  I hope to see you at breakfast to personally wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope you all have the opportunity to spend time with family and friends this 2015 holiday season.

This month’s meeting is going to be very interesting as we are welcoming Major Don Philip of 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron as our meeting speaker.  Major Philip has been the Operations Officer for the Squadron and is currently Delta Flight commander responsible for mentoring junior aircrew.  Don, in a continuing role to increase community awareness about the Squadron’s mission will discuss “A view inside an Air Force Operational Squadron”Also, as many of you may be aware, 443 (MH) Squadron has been operating out of the Victoria International Airport for the past 25 years and most recently moved into a major new facility.

Consequently as an added bonus to our normal meeting talk, Major Philip will be conducting “A Tour of 443 (MH) Squadron Operations” immediately following our breakfast meeting.  This tour will be from 0900-1100.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday 10th December, 2015 at 7am and, as before, please RSVP (cooke@ieee.org) only if you plan on attending.  Also, as we are also including a tour, please indicate in your RSVP if you will be attending the tour.  This tour RSVP is needed by 8 December.  Thank you. 

Best Wishes for the Christmas Season!
