A change-of-command ceremony is scheduled next week at a major aviation maintenance center at Naval Air Station North Island, the Navy announced Tuesday.
Capt. Craig Owen will relieve Capt. Timothy Pfannenstein as commanding officer of Fleet Readiness Center Southwest on Aug. 11, according to the Navy.
Pfannenstein served as the facility commander for two years. Owen is his executive officer.
The center overhauls, repairs and modifies Navy and Marine Corps aircraft and their components. In January, a $50 million, 100,000-square-foot helicopter maintenance facility opened at the base, with 30 bays designed to maintain the H-60 Seahawk series of choppers.
