The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) is observing the fifth anniversary of, the organization’s exclusive business aircraft online search portal.

Utilizing the portal in the past five years, IADA dealers have sold over 6,500 aircraft worth $60 billion. It is the only site where every aircraft listed for sale is represented by an IADA-Accredited Dealer.

Currently, nearly 600 business aircraft are listed exclusively by IADA dealers on the site, which anyone can search. AircraftExchange, launched Feb 1, 2019, is now accessed 46,000 times monthly by buyers and sellers of aircraft.

The Go-To Marketplace for Preowned Aircraft

“AircraftExchange is now the go-to marketplace where the best biz aircraft are bought and sold by the best, most-respected professionals in the aviation business,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “When aircraft sellers list their aircraft with the world’s only accredited dealers, they access IADA’s global reach and strong network to bring about a well-researched and appropriately priced sale much faster with more transparency than any other sales route,” Starling added.

AircraftExchange is the only marketplace that provides access to a network of accredited dealers and certified brokers, as well as a stable of verified aviation services and products members to complete transactions and operate aircraft. To earn accreditation, IADA dealers must meet rigid standards and undergo a formal review process. IADA dealers and certified brokers adhere to a strict code of ethics that ensures fully transparent transactions.

In addition, IADA carefully vets and verifies aviation service and aviation products providers for their capabilities, experience, expertise, and history of customer satisfaction before approving them as valued IADA members. These elite providers meet IADA’s high standards and expectations for aircraft maintenance, insurance, financing, and more, and maintain ongoing, decades-long relationships with the organization.

The AircraftExchange search portal enables organizations to create a confidential dashboard of business jets for sale, filtered based on their features and amenities, aircraft class, age, and price. Buyers can browse through data-rich listings for the most popular aircraft manufacturers, including Embraer, Cessna, Bombardier, and Gulfstream jets.

Watch-lists with enabled custom alerts and updates notify users when aircraft for sale become available and track price changes, helping guide purchase decisions and timing.

Weekly aircraft reports provide data and insights with the latest listings and records of recent sales. Stay in-the-know buyers and sellers can provide timely updates to C-suite executives to buy and sell business aircraft from the world’s most-trusted dealers.
