Commemorative Air Force Appoints Chief of Staff

Jordan Brown to Head Board, Joined by 5 New Members of General Staff

The Commemorative Air Force kicked off the year with the first General Staff meeting of 2022 by welcoming 5 new members to the organization: Buddy Cooksey, Bob Stenevik, Denise Walker, Gordon Webb, and Erik Zipkin. The General Staff voted to appoint Jordan Brown to the position of Chief of Staff following his 3 years of faithful service. 

The General Staff is the head of the CAF, filled with often high-flying board members who work with or for similar organizations, including the American Airpower Heritage Foundation, the American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum, and the American Airpower Heritage Museum. The board meets throughout the year to monitor the health and sustainability of the force which are open to all CAF members.

Brown told those gathered he looks forward to fulfilling the CAF mission. “I am humbled and honored to take on this role as the head of the Board of Directors for the Commemorative Air Force. The trajectory of the organization adding new units, new programs, and new aircraft is very exciting. This organization is in a great position to continue performing our mission to educate, inspire and honor. I am proud to represent our members and supporters and welcome your thoughts and concerns openly." 

“I am really looking forward to working with this group of General Staff members. They represent different aspects of the organization from small and large Units, new and long-time members, aviation experience, and business backgrounds. They each have important skills to bring to the table, which combined serve to strengthen and lead the CAF forward in strategic planning and asset management,“ said Hank Coates, CAF President.
