Meridian has been accepted as a verified products and services member of the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA), an aviation organisation that accredits aircraft dealers. Aviation product and service providers are thoroughly vetted before acceptance to assure the highest ethical standards and levels of experience.
IADA specialists offer buyers and sellers of preowned aircraft the best advice available to make the most appropriate deals. IADA's products and services members have been verified by the organisation to assist in aircraft transactions. In addition, more than 40 IADA-accredited dealers specialise in representing buyers and sellers.
Products and services members are those companies whose primary focus is related to the support of an aircraft transaction, whether their expertise is in finance, law, tax, escrow or maintenance. The membership application process for products and services membership is rigorous. It begins with an applicant completing the standard application. As part of the application process, the candidate will contact three IADA members to ask for their support as a sponsor. The IADA membership votes on new products and services applicants twice a year.
Patti Ann Sullivan, Meridian's VP of aircraft management, comments: “IADA is a premier organisation for aviation companies. We are both excited and honoured to be part of this prestigious group. Aircraft management is one of our core business offerings, so it's a natural fit for us. We look forward to contributing our expertise and resources to help expand the mission of the organisation, as well as to support fellow member companies.”
“As the world's only accredited aircraft dealer organisation, we are pleased to have Meridian as a new products and services member,” adds IADA executive director Wayne Starling. “Meridian strengthens our organisation during a pivotal economic time when buyers and sellers of aircraft are navigating a rapidly changing economic environment.”
