Washington, DC, February 13, 2013 – 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). The scholarship, which is given annually in coordination with the family of Donald A. Baldwin Sr., promotes professional development in business aviation by providing financial support for qualified CAM exam candidates.

The recipients are:

  • David M. Hines is a flight captain with Regions Financial Corporation in Birmingham, AL. He started his career in the airlines but quickly learned that business aviation was his true calling. In his experience, he has learned that empowering and motivating employees increases safety and efficiency. He is working on the CAM program to acquire the knowledge to become a successful director of aviation.
  • Alberto Loza is a contract pilot, based in San Diego, CA who flies Gulfstream aircraft internationally. He is passionate about a career in business aviation, and wants to become a manager. Being a CAM, he feels, will help him achieve that goal.

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.

The Baldwin Business Aviation Management Scholarship is one of several scholarships offered by NBAA to promote professional development and business aviation careers. For more information, visit
