Maj. Robert Corsi assumed command of the 92nd Maintenance Squadron from Lt. Col. Leonard Shores, during a ceremony held at Fairchild Air Force Base, July 1.

Corsi was previously at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, attending the Air Command and Staff College. Shores leaves the 92nd MXS to be the new commander for the 92nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron.

“To the men and women of the 92nd Maintenance Squadron, you made the mission happen and I am honored to have been your commander,” said Shores.

Corsi entered the Air Force in 1990 as an enlisted aircraft maintenance member and commissioned in 2002.

“92nd MXS, congratulations on your incredible achievements over the last 2 years,” Corsi said. “The tests that you have been put through and the successes you have achieved are a testament to your professionalism, dedication to our country and our mission. In today’s climate, our mission has never been more important to our national security.”

Corsi is an aircraft maintenance officer with more than 25 years of experience on C-141B Starlifter, C-17A Globemaster, MH-53M Pave Low, C-5B/C Galaxy and C-130 Hercules aircraft. He has served in various positions at the squadron, wing and higher headquarters levels.

This is Corsi’s first assignment as a squadron commander.
