Col. Chad K. Cisewski assumed command of the 92nd Air Refueling Wing and Chief Master Sgt. Lindsay S. Moon assumed responsibility as the new 92nd ARW command chief during a change of command and change of responsibility ceremony, July 2, 2024.

Maj. Gen. Corey Martin, 18th Air Force commander, presided over the ceremony.

Martin praised Col. Chesley Dycus, outgoing 92nd ARW commander for the performance of the wing over the last two years and the impact it made around the world and expressed his confidence in Cisewski’s leadership and his ability to continue that success.

“The 92nd needed a new leader that could build on Col. Dycus’ foundation, and I didn’t have to look very far because Col. Cisewski showcased his strong leadership abilities during his command over the 92nd Operations group,” said Martin. “He comes with deep airlift experience and has excelled in a joint assignment; and as General Minihan says, we are the meaningful maneuver for the Joint Force, so I know Cisewski is going to be the man for the job.”

As the new commander of the 92nd ARW, Cisewski shared his thoughts on his new role.

“I couldn’t be more honored to have the opportunity to continue serving here at Fairchild as your new 92nd Air Refueling Wing Commander,” Cisewski said. “Chief Moon and I are ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work alongside you. We will execute our mission with confidence and conviction. Whether you fly, fix or support, we will work together to tackle the toughest challenges any future conflict may bring, I am honored to joint this team. Let’s get to work!”

Before assuming command, Cisewski was the commander of the 92nd Operations Group, Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington. Cisewski will now lead the more than 13,000 Fairchild Airmen and families who will provide strategic air refueling on a global scale.

Cisewski commissioned to the Reserve Officer Training Corps program at the University of Minnesota Duluth in the year 2002. He served in various operational assignments as an instructor and evaluator pilot in the KC-135, C-17, and C-21. His staff assignments include Air Mobility Command, U.S. Transportation Command and U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa. Finally, throughout his career he has logged over 3,600 flight hours as a Command Pilot, including over 700 combat hours.
