Wing getting new leader

NAVAL AIR STATION WHITING FIELD, Fla. - Col. Dave Morris will turn over command of Training Air Wing Five March 14 during a change of command ceremony at Naval Air Station Whiting Field's Cmdr. Clyde E. Lassen Auditorium. Capt. Doug Rosa will assume command of the Navy's largest training wing and assume the title of commodore during the event. Morris, among his other assignments, was assigned to fly the Blue Angels C-130 during the 2001-2003 airshow season. He will take on an assignment at the Pentagon. Rosa reported to Training Air Wing Five in August 2017, and assumed the position of deputy commodore. Rosa will now be responsible for an estimated 43 percent of the Chief of Naval Air Training Command's total flight time and more than 14 percent of Navy and Marine Corps' flight time world-wide.
