Vice Adm. Carl Chebi has been named the head of Naval Air Systems Command, taking the position in a change-of-command ceremony Thursday at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, MD.

Chebi, an F-14 pilot who most recently served as the F-35 Joint Program Office deputy program executive officer, relieved Vice Adm. Dean Peters.

Peters assumed the position in May 2018 and is retiring after a 36-year Navy career.
