Mark your calendars for Saturday January 31, 2015 and plan to attend the Wings Banquet, in celebration  of 2014 accomplishments by VFC students and pilots.

Join us at the Ward Room (1586 Esquimalt Rd) at 6:00 for cocktails before a delicious dinner and the awards ceremony. Dress is semi-formal. Tickets are $40 and are available to members and guests from the VFC office. PPL and CPL graduates receive one complimentary ticket. Please RSVP by January 24th.

We do hope you will join us for a night of celebration, great food, and a chance to get to know other club members. Along with recognizing our graduates, a number of flight training bursaries will also be awarded (see page 8 and 12 for more information on how to apply). This year we are pleased to welcome back Ret. Colonel George Miller as our guest speaker for the night.

For more than 35 years Colonel Miller was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, flying F-86 Sabres and CF-104 Starfighters in Europe, and with the Golden Hawks, Canada’s first jet military aerobatic team. He went on to become a team leader of the Canadian  Snowbirds. We are looking forward to hearing him share stories and photos from his extraordinary experiences.

The Wings Banquet is a long-standing tradition at the Victoria Flying Club. Because our members are busy people who all operate on different schedules, it is not often that we gather together as a group to celebrate what we have accomplished as individuals, and as a club. That’s what makes the Wings Banquet special!

Everyone is welcome to attend and graduates are encouraged to invite friends, family, and guests. VFC members are certainly encouraged to attend, even if they are not among this year’s graduates. It is an inspiring and encouraging evening for everyone!
