C150 Global Odyssey
Start date: 1 July, 2017
End date: 13 August, 2017
The C150 Global Odyssey will be the first Canadian circumnavigation of the globe by helicopter. It is a true adventure that's an official Canada 150 event celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation. I have attached a PDF overview to this email.
Staring July 1, the team will fly a Bell 429 helicopter 38,000 kilometers around the world, making 103 stops in 14 countries. This will be the first circumnavigation by Canadians, and the first by a father/son team as well. Along the way we will be joined by celebrities like astronaut Dave Williams and hockey legend Guy Lafleur.
Nature of the Project Reach
Our journey of 38,000 kilometers will take us to 103 places in 14 countries, including over 60 in Canada alone. Along the way we will visit every Canadian provincial and territorial capital.
Our goals are to celebrate 150 years of Canadian culture, history, adventure, and innovation by flying around the world in a Canadian-made Bell 429 helicopter.
C150 Global Odyssey is a registered federal not-for-profit raising money for True Patriot Love, a veterans charity, and Southlake Regional Hospital, one of Canada's leading cancer care facilities.
We will be visiting communities all across Canada! Please help us get the word out to local government and media outlets. And of course, be sure to come see us when we visit your town!
