WASHINGTON, DC, July 11, 2008 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced four individuals who successfully passed the Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Examination, which was administered by the Association in May. 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:
  • Brian E. Bockholt, captain and training office, Briggs & Stratton Corporation, Milwaukee, WI
  • Paul R. Erickson, standardization captain, ExxonMobil Aviation, Houston, TX
  • Chad E. Lahman, director of aviation, Level3 Communications, Broomfield, CO
  • Denise Wilson, chief pilot, Desert Jet, La Quinta, CA

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.

The next CAM Exam will be administered in July and September in a computer-based format.  The next paper-based exam will be administered on October 5, in conjunction with the NBAA 61st Annual Meeting & Convention in Orlando, FL.
