Speaker: Ben Van Etten, CWO5 U.S. Army Aviator
Our program for April allows us to hear fellow-Chapter member Ben Van Etten, CWO5, USA (Ret.), talk about his experiences flying fixed wing aircraft and helicopters for the Army and for Air America, the “CIA’s airline” in Southeast Asia. Ben has recently published “Fifty Years Before the (Rotor) Mast: A Memoir of an Air America Helicopter Pilot”, detailing his experiences in a variety of situations. Included are rescues, combat operations, mountain and offshore flying, medical evacuations, flight instruction and numerous flight missions that require pushing the flight envelope to the maximum
