On the heels of the recent National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) conclave in Las Vegas, Partners In Aviation (PIA), the firm that developed the concept of aircraft Managed Co-Ownership, which matches two owners to one aircraft, has announced their accredited Products & Services membership in the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA).
IADA’s collective mission is to influence and shape the aircraft transaction industry to benefit not only the industry as a whole, but to benefit business aircraft owners.
The leading IADA member organizations are committed to creating and promoting professional standards; effective, transparent, and ethical transactions; and fostering an open exchange of information between its fellow members and aircraft owners and users at large.
“In the 30 years since its inception, IADA has done a superb job of creating a highly respected, powerful resource for our industry that attracts firms dedicated, even obsessed, with delivering unmatched quality to its customers,” said Partners In Aviation founder Mark Molloy.
“IADA’s efforts in establishing standards, promoting transparency, providing accreditation, and creating professional curriculum and programming have served to increase the level of respect and comfort afforded to aircraft transactions with its members by the public. It’s a team I want to be a part of.”
For IADA Products & Services members like PIA, the membership is an earned privilege: Involvement with the organization requires rigorous application vetting, sponsorship by at least three current IADA members, and a winning vote-in from the IADA membership ranks.
In service to the membership, PIA will be spearheading development of educational content to share with IADA members specific to its special niche: the benefits of structured aircraft co-ownership.
“We are very pleased that Partners in Aviation has become one of our newest Products and Services members,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling.
“PIA’s thoughtful business model permits more individuals and companies to realize the benefits of private flying.”
