NBAA Announces Recipients of 2011 Corporate Aviation Management Scholarship

Individuals Will Be Recognized At The Leadership Conference, Feb. 23-24

The NBAA announced Friday that four individuals have been selected by the Association's Corporate Aviation Management Committee as recipients of the 2011 Corporate Aviation Management Scholarship.

Each scholarship includes a value equivalent to $1,650 to cover expenses associated with attendance at NBAA's 2011 Leadership Conference, taking place on February 23 and 24, 2011, in San Diego.
