SPECIAL NOTE: Philadelphia Farewell to Rhett Flater

Dear Valued AHS member,

The Philadelphia chapter of the American Helicopter Society must regretfully inform you that our scheduled speaker, Colonel Bob Marion, was called away suddenly and urgently and is unable to make the April 12th dinner.  The dinner will still be held as Boeing’s new VP of H-47 Programs, Leanne Caret, has graciously agreed to address the chapter. We must also postpone our farewell to Rhett Flater as he is unable to attend tomorrow’s dinner. We hope that the change in speaker and special program will not impact your plans but if they do, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can properly accommodate all guests. Thank you all for your continued support of our chapter.

Sincerely,
Keith Conaron
The American Helicopter Society
President, Philadelphia Chapter
