443 Maritime squadron has new $155-million home in Victoria
April 14, 2015, Victoria, B.C. - Canada’s Pacific coast helicopter unit has moved into a $155-million facility at Victoria International Airport, bringing together operations that had been spread among aging structures.
The 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron, which traces its history to the Second World War, has dubbed its new headquarters Arundel Castle in honour of that time.
“One of the perks of being the first to occupy this building is that we were given the honour of choosing the name,” said Lt.-Col. Patrick MacNamara, the squadron’s commanding officer. “In the end, the unit chose the name which represented the spirit of the squadron, Arundel Castle.” | READ MORE
