IADA Member Clients Get Free Carbon Assessment, Program Discounts

BOSTON, Nov. 28, 2022 – The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) and 4AIR have partnered to assist the resale industry in being stewards of the planet’s climate.

The partnership with 4AIR is a statement that the leaders in the business aviation resale industry place importance on sustainability,” said David Monacell, IADA Chair Emeritus, and Partner in CFS Jets.

“We are pleased that 4AIR has joined IADA as a Products and Services member. This new partnership gives IADA’s accredited dealers yet another tool to be the very best counselors available for buyers and sellers of business aircraft,” he added.

“With today’s growing scrutiny of private travel and its impact on the environment, it’s increasingly important to be able to assist buyers and sellers answer questions about prospective aircraft and their environmental impacts,” said Kennedy Ricci, 4AIR President. “We provide an avenue to help those looking to make meaningful, verified, and documented steps in understanding and minimizing their environmental footprint. IADA and its members are helping lead the industry to a sustainable future.”
