JetHQ Receives IADA Accreditation

KANSAS CITY, MO. – JetHQ has been accepted into an elite group of the world’s most successful aircraft dealers. The aircraft transaction and brokerage company announces that it has become a member of the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA).

IADA conducts the world’s only aircraft dealer accreditation program, which requires companies to undergo a thorough and rigorous vetting process. Only 3% of all aircraft dealers earn IADA membership, but IADA dealers account for more than 50% of all pre-owned aircraft sales.

“We are pleased to be recognized by this prestigious organization. We’ve worked with many of IADA’s members and look forward to expanding our relationships with others,” says JetHQ Founder and Managing Director Garett Jerde. “Our vision and values are in line with the IADA’s high standards, as we believe trust and transparency is critical in building long-lasting relationships.”

“IADA is very pleased to welcome JetHQ into the ranks of IADA-accredited aircraft dealers,” says IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “JetHQ joins an elite group of professionals who have met and surpassed rigorous standards to achieve recognition as highly skilled dealers at the top of their profession.”

Formed in 1991, the IADA was created to assure aircraft buyers and sellers of the highest level of ethics, experience and standards. IADA members must agree to commit themselves to the association’s code of ethics, which include points on integrity-based transactions, commissions and aircraft representation.

IADA members also commit themselves to constantly improving the quality of their services, products and operations. JetHQ has recently expanded its team and offerings to meet a growing market demand. The company has invested resources in North American locations to complement its extensive international presence. Along with updating its visual branding, JetHQ recently launched a newly designed website with increased functionality to better serve customers and prospects.

Companies are only eligible for IADA membership after a five years of business with documented sales experience and transactions. They also must be sponsored by three current IADA accredited dealers. A third-party accreditation firm verifies the process and application. IADA dealers must be re-accredited every three years.
