235th Civil Engineer Flight

On behalf of the 235th Civil Engineer Flight (235 CEF),we welcome you to the homepage of one of the finest Civil Engineer flights in the Air Force. We    provide a broad base of technical and management expertise to achieve Air National Guard and major Command objectives during peacetime and  contingencies.

The 235 CEF is a Command Staff Augmentation Flight (COMSAF) that provides worldwide deployable engineer augmentation team (S-Team) support to Major Commands and Numbered Air Force staffs for command and control of engineer forces, fire protection management, engineering projects and technical assistance. The 235 CEF is one of five S-Teams in the Air National Guard.

235th CEF Organization

The 235th CEF consists of three 12-person S-Teams.  The Air Force formed Staff Augmentation Teams (S-Teams) to meet the wartime needs of augmenting a Command or a combined/joint task force in support of regional contingencies or a major theater war.

235th Civil Engineer Flight

The 235th Civil Engineer Flight (CEF) is part of the 175th Wing of the Maryland Air National Guard (ANG) at Martin State Airport, just NE of Baltimore, MD.  The unit consists primarily of traditional Guardsmen, both enlisted and officer.


Unlike Prime BEEF units, S-Teams are not tied to a specific weapons system and are not typically responsible for base operations, maintenance, or sustainment.  As high-demand, low-density units, S-Teams are not scheduled into the Aerospace Expeditionary Force.  Our primary mission during peacetime is to train for wartime; however, States may also call upon ANG S-Teams to support missions such as disaster relief and civil defense.  Our Concept of Operations lists the following six Mission Essential Tasks:

Operational Planning
Engineer Management
Technical Design and Construction Management
Command and Control
Expeditionary Site Planning
Reporting on contingency activities
