The scholarship promotes professional development in business aviation by providing financial support for qualified CAM exam candidates.

Baldwin, an accomplished general aviation pilot and beloved father, was a member of NBAA’s Board of Directors from 1968 to 1971. He was recognized for his contributions to business aviation with the NBAA John P. “Jack” Doswell Award in 1992 and the Flight Safety Foundation Business Aviation Meritorious Service Award in 1991.

This scholarship will be redeemable under the conditions established by NBAA and the family of Donald A. Baldwin Sr. Funds for this scholarship will total up to $1,225 for one person to be used for pursuing CAM certification or advanced safety-related courses. Funds also will be provided for recipients to register for the NBAA Leadership Conference. Recipients are responsible for other costs associated with the scholarship, such as travel and lodging expenses. NBAA scholarship applicants are limited to receiving one award per person, per year.
