Washington, DC, Feb. 20, 2014 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced the recipients of its Donald A. Baldwin Sr. Business Aviation Management Scholarship, which benefits individuals seeking to become NBAA Certified Aviation Managers (CAMs).

Baldwin Sr., promotes professional development in business aviation by providing financial support for qualified CAM exam candidates.

The recipients are:

Shaun Gerber is a flight operations captain with TEG Architects, Jeffersonville, IN. He is a graduate of Purdue University as well as a flight instructor there and has an ATP rating.

He thinks that the CAM certification will add another level to his dedication to the business aviation market. He has been a King Air chief pilot and a first officer in a citation series. Brigman is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

The scholarship is named for Donald A. Baldwin Sr., an accomplished general aviation pilot who served on NBAA's Board of Directors from 1968 to 1971. In his lifetime, he was recognized for his contributions to business aviation with the NBAA John P. "Jack" Doswell Award and the Flight Safety Foundation Business Aviation Meritorious Service Award.
