MIAMI, September 25, 2013 – Executive Air Services (EAS), a worldwide aircraft charter and management company , has announced that Huey Martin, Director of Operations, has obtained the industry’s highest recognition by passing a rigorous examination administered by the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).
Out of the 8,000 plus companies represented by the NBAA, only 200 individuals have passed the Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Exam. NBAA’s Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) program recognizes professionals qualified to lead flight departments and companies that utilize business aircraft, as well as professionals that manage aircraft for aircraft charter and management companies. The CAM designation provides industry recognition of those individuals who are qualified to provide business aviation-related services such aircraft charter, aircraft sales and acquisition representation, and consulting services on all matters related to the operation of business aircraft. Martin is now one of only a handful of professionals in the country that are designated as a Certified Aviation Manager by the NBAA.

Typically, a CAM will have several decades of experience in aviation, the highest level licensing granted by the Federal Aviation Administration, and one or more academic degrees, as well as significant participation in aviation industry events.
“We are proud of Huey’s accomplishment in earning the CAM designation” said Jeff Reis, Managing Director at EAS Charter. “We fully support NBAA’s efforts in formalizing a standard that all aircraft managers should strive to achieve. We feel our clients deserve the highest levels of management services available and that this designation will also help potential clients choose their next aircraft management company.”
