WASHINGTON, DC, May 3, 2007 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced seven individuals who successfully passed the Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Examination, which was administered by the Association in February and April 2007. Through the certification process, NBAA and the Certified Aviation Manager Governing Board seek to raise the level of professionalism and quality of management within flight departments.

The new Certified Aviation Managers are:

  • Timothy Kern, Tim Kern INK, Eagle Lake, FL
  • Edward A. Murray, Eastman Kodak Aviation, Rochester, NY
  • Mark R. Reimann, Drug Enforcement Agency, Arlington, VA
  • Tina A. Spence, Avaya Corporation, Morristown, NJ
  • John J. Swaney, Electronic Data Systems, Dallas, TX
  • Sydney A. Baker, Eastman Kodak Aviation, Rochester, NY
  • Brian J. Siems, Caterpillar Inc., Peoria, IL

NBAA congratulates these business aviation professionals on their achievement. These individuals have earned the official title of Certified Aviation Manager and may use that designation when officially listing their name. The CAM designation provides industry recognition of their achievement and knowledge in the following areas of business aviation: business management, leadership, operations, personnel management, and technical and facilities services.

To prepare for the CAM designation, the individuals met or exceeded minimum qualifications based upon experience, training and education. They completed both a formal application process and the CAM Exam, which is offered throughout the year in conjunction with the NBAA Leadership Conference, Maintenance Management Conference and Annual Meeting & Convention.

With these seven additions, a total of 95 individuals have passed the exam and are designated as CAMs. Past successes indicate a passing rate of 75 percent of candidates who complete the exam.

The next CAM Exam will be administered on September 24 in Atlanta, GA, in conjunction with the NBAA 60th Annual Meeting & Convention. The deadline to apply for the September exam is August 6.
