CDR Radio Episode 16 – Yvan Blondin

As part of CDR’s on-going series of interviews with military commanders, we asked Senior Staff writer, Joetey Attariwala, to sit down with Lieutenant-General (Ret’d) Yvan Blondin. Blondin was a fighter pilot with the Canadian Air Force and had the distinction of being the Commander of the RCAF from 2012 until his retirement in 2015. It was a wide-ranging and candid discussion about how the Gripen E may be the best fighter deal for Canada, why the Griffon Helicopter should be replaced, the ill-conceived sole-sourcing of the Super Hornet & much more. This episode of the CDR Radio podcast is sponsored by Peraton – A trusted partner for over 35 years to the CAF and RCAF, providing industry-leading mission sustainment solutions for both domestic and deployed operations.
