Chewy (aka Corey) and Happy (aka Mark) met 25 years ago at Aviation College in Thunder Bay. Between them, they have over 60 years of flying experience and they have proudly served in the Royal Canadian Air Force for nearly 40 of those years; providing aid to countries in need, flying with the Snowbirds, and serving several tours in Afghanistan. Happy and Chewy have both retired from the Air Force and are still working together in their post-military retirement years. They have now shifted their focus from work to their families. Their families have sacrificed so much that they want to give back to them for everything they have done.

What’s the story behind your nicknames?
These were our Air Force callsigns.

Who is your hero?
Chewy: My late father.
Happy: My first commanding officer, Rob Thorneycroft.

Favourite Travel Destination
Chewy: South Africa
Happy: Go Home Lake, ON

What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Chewy: Toothbrush
Happy: Morning Coffee

Team Motto
There are no points for second place so you’re either in, or in the way!

What would your team walk-on song be?
“Top Gun Anthem” by Harold Faltermeyer and Steve Stevens

I've always wanted to have a team represent Fighter Pilots (M/M, F/F or M/F) somewhat like Top Gun-like people. TAR Canada gave it.

So the codenames came from just what it sounds like - Happy Gilmore and Chewbacca. I love this team already.
