The Order of AHEPA is sponsoring the Testimonial Dinner and Dance in honor of PDG Dimitrios Rozanitis. The event will be hosted at the Danielle Kousoulis Cultural Center at St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church, in Cherry Hill, NJ. All proceeds will go toward the purchase of a maintenance vehicle to repair Greece’s firefighting Aircrafts away from their base.
The 383 Sqn was formed on May 16th, 2003, as a result of the splitting of the 355 Tactical Transport Squadron (TTS), which still operates with the older Canadair type, CL-215. In 2006, after a Supreme Air Force Council decision, the squadron is based on the 113 Combat Wing in Thessaloniki.
The squadron’s main role is the aerial firefighting, a very demanding task, especially during the filling-up of the water tanks from the sea and during airdrops, taking into account that an airdrop takes place from an altitude of approx. 100 ft. In addition, the crews are in a continuous 15-minute alert.
