IADA broadens global connections
Oriens Aviation, Jetquity, Martyn Fiddler and AfBAA have joined the association, growing it as a global player in the business aircraft resale space thanks to business in the US, UK, Ireland, Dubai, Isle of Man and Africa.

The International Aircraft Dealers Association has expanded its worldwide member roster by adding another international business aircraft dealer, two products and services members and forming a reciprocal relationship with the African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA).

The newest IADA-accredited aircraft dealer is Oriens Aviation, active in the UK and Ireland. Newly IADA-verified Products and Services members are Jetquity, with headquarters in Dubai, UAE, and Martyn Fiddler Aviation, located on the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea. The AfBAA promotes business aviation on the African continent.

"All of these international relationships are key to IADA growing as a global player in the business aircraft resale space," says executive director Wayne Starling. "The global IADA collaborative, formed by our dealers and the professionals from many disciplines who support the resale of business aircraft along with reciprocal associations, has become a powerful force for the industry."

Oriens Aviation was founded by CEO Edwin Brenninkmeyer, an experienced aircraft owner and pilot with a passion for flying, quality, value and exceptional customer service. From its headquarters at London Biggin Hill airport, Oriens is the authorised distributor for Pilatus Aircraft and Tecnam Aircraft in the British Isles. It is also an authorised Cirrus Partner, offering maintenance work on the SR series fleet.

Oriens also offers cost-effective aircraft charter options and a full range of aircraft maintenance services to private aircraft owners and operators, as well as warranty work, aircraft management, pilot training and comprehensive aircraft ownership support.

Jetquity, a global business with headquarters in Manhattan, New York and Dubai, UAE, is a group of companies that specialises in innovation and investing in business aviation under CEO Asad Rahman. Its core Protect product is a residual value guarantee, available for new and pre-owned business jets. The programme is designed to protect the aircraft buyer's capital and mitigate the loss against depreciation. The residual value guarantee is supported by Jetquity Capital, a private investment office with investments in real estate, venture capital and private aviation. With a collective debt fund of $1.5 billion, Jetquity Capital specialises in raising debt and equity for businesses in the private aviation space.

As chartered tax advisors, Martyn Fiddler Aviation works on business aviation tax matters across Europe and the UK. Based on the Isle of Man, the privately owned company has been providing advice on aircraft ownership, export and import for over 40 years. Its professionals have in-house capabilities to identify issues and provide solutions for business aircraft owners and operators.

AfBAA promotes the understanding and benefits that business aviation provides for the African continent's economic development and prosperity, offering assistance and support to enterprises, entrepreneurs, business leaders, governments and their respective civil aviation authorities. Alcinda Pereira is AfBAA board chair.
