Capt. Lynne Albert
Public Affairs Officer
North Carolina Wing

Col. Edward Angelovich assumed command of the North Carolina Wing on Feb. 8, taking over for Col. R. Jason Bailey, who has commanded the North Carolina Wing since 2016.

The change of command ceremony took place at the 2020 North Carolina Wing conference, with more than 400 Civil Air Patrol members and guests in attendance. Col. Bruce Heinlein, commander of the Mid-Atlantic Region, presided over the ceremony.

"The dedication and legacy of excellence of the North Carolina Wing members keeps us as a leader in Civil Air Patrol,” Angelovich, previously the wing’s vice commander, said after taking command.

“I pledge to bring my best efforts every day as your new wing commander and to continue our tradition of service and sacrifice to help those in need," he said.

Bailey thanked the wing’s members for helping him during his four years as commander, calling his tenure “a joy and a pleasure."
