Major General (ret) Scott Clancy served in the Canadian Armed Forces as a tactical helicopter pilot. He was a member of multiple helicopter squadrons of the Royal Canadian Air Force throughout his career including Command of 1 Wing. His close ties with the Canadian Army were fostered on those squadrons culminating with teaching tactics at the Canadian Army Staff College at Fort Frontenac. As a staff officer he trained units and formations, while planning expeditionary operations at all levels of the Air Force, culminating as Director General Air Readiness on the RCAF staff. His 37 year career included command of the Air Component in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010 and being responsible for the mounting and sustainment of Chinook helicopter forces to Afghanistan, both of which earned him a meritorious service medal. His last years of service saw him as the Deputy Commander of the Alaskan NORAD Region and finally Director of Operations for all NORAD in Colorado Springs. Since his retirement to Cobourg in August 2021, he has been spending time with his two boys Mathew and Ryan, mentoring senior officers, executive coaching and writing his book: Coaches Need to Lead, Leaders Need to Coach. He is a member of the Order of Military Merit, but his greatest achievement is being married to the love of his life; Val.
