Since introducing the first accreditation and certification programs for aircraft transaction specialists, the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) has transformed the industry and elevated the professionalism of its experts. Since 2019 when the dual programs to boost competence and integrity began, IADA has expanded its membership by 13 additional dealers, or nearly 30 percent.
Moreover, more than 100 aircraft brokers are engaged by the organization’s 46 IADA-accredited dealers and six OEM members. Collectively, the group represents the top seven percent of the world’s aircraft transaction experts, doing business in more than 100 countries. Additionally, IADA-verified Products and Services (P&S) membership has expanded over that same time period by 14, to a total of 62 P&S members who handle all technical aspects of aircraft sales and purchases.
