Janice Macau Posted March 29, 2022 Report Share Posted March 29, 2022 I am trying to put together some information about my father's life in aviation and wonder whether anyone from this organization might remember him. He was Canadian pilot with early flying experience out of Roosevelt Field, Long Island during the 1930s, trained to become a helicopter pilot at Sheppard Field in 1945, was instrumental in integrating helicopters onto Canada's icebreakers, became Vice-President of Okanagan Helicopters and finished his career at Pratt & Whitney Canada in 1974. I know he had many American friends in the U.S. Coast Guard and through the Twirly Birds, and was a regular attendee at AHS conferences. He died in 1984. I realize that his contemporaries are no longer living, but I am posting this in the vain hope that some younger folks might have some recollection of Jack Charleson. I have attached a photo of my father in the red jacket with his Twirly Bird tie talking with Sir Douglas Bader, perhaps at a AHS conference during the 1970s. Thank you! 69AB0584-DB9F-430F-BE07-89B073CEC78A.jp2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
