Carlisle was most recently Air Force deputy chief of staff in Washington. Before that, he commanded the 13th Air Force from Hawaii.

Carlisle succeeds Gen. Gary North who is retiring. 

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz will preside over the change of command ceremony. 

North has served as Pacific Air Forces commander for three years.
