The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) hopes to more than double its ranks of certified aircraft brokers next month, the organization announced. That’s when about 50 brokers will sit for the IADA certification exam on the eve of the 2019 NBAA convention, to be held from October 22-24 in Las Vegas.
“With their new IADA certifications, the skilled brokers who pass these upcoming tests in late October will embody the very best qualities and transparency expected of professionals who can be trusted with handling aircraft transactions worth millions of dollars,” IADA executive director Wayne Starling said. “Both buyers and sellers of aircraft can rest assured they are dealing with the most competent experts available in our industry.”
Brokers successfully completing the examination will join 35 other certified brokers who work for one of the 38 IADA accredited dealers. IADA also expects to approve a handful of additional dealers for accreditation. Both activities are set to take place at IADA’s fall meeting, which also is being held in Las Vegas.
