Paying it forward: Female leadership at 417 Combat Support Squadron
417 Combat Support Squadron (417 CS Sqn) at 4 Wing Cold Lake, Alta., is a relatively small entity within the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), but both its mission and its staffing composition are unique. The squadron is tasked with operating three hoist-equipped Bell CH-146 Griffon helicopters to provide search and rescue (SAR) services for the area in general, as well as to support 4 Wing’s three squadrons of Boeing CF-188 Hornets and one of BAE Systems CT-155 Hawk lead-in jet trainers while they are training over the densely-forested range.
