Washington, DC, June 24, 2004 – National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Chairman and Interim President Donald E. Baldwin and National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) Executive Director Mike Jackson yesterday met at NBAA Headquarters to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, which states the intent of each organization to form new alliances and collaborate on activities.

Currently, the organizations share many common goals and objectives, including the promotion, preservation and advancement of aviation interests both in the United States and worldwide. In the future, NBAA will utilize the NAHF, based in Dayton, OH, as a conduit for telling the story of business aviation, for engaging and educating youths about career opportunities, and for other opportunities. The NAHF will have access to the opinions, resources and energies of NBAA Member Companies and other potential supporters.
