Symposium 2016 in Review

This year’s annual Symposium was held May 9th through 13th in Norfolk, Virginia at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel. It was an exciting week highlighted by an outstanding Member’s Reunion aboard the Spirit of Norfolk followed by our first ever Casino Night where some wonderful prizes were given away including a flat screen tv, Xbox One® bundle, FLIR FX-Home Security Camera/GoPro, and the coveted 100 Year Celebration of Naval Aviation Breitling watch (1 of only 500 ever made). Other events included the annual Aircrew Challenge, Tides Baseball Game, 5K Run, O’Connor’s Brewery Social, and Golf Tournament. Briefings included The Future of Vertical Lift, Aircrew Panel, HAL-3 Seawolves Rescue Recap, Commodore/CAG Round Table, Waterfront Perspective, and the always popular Captains of Industry and Flag Panels. See videos here.. This year’s Captains of Industry brief featured the presentation of the first NHA Corporate Leadership Award given to Mr. Joe Battaglia of Telephonics Corporation.
