IADA adds new products and services expertise

IADA Foundation now tax deductible

Dallas, Texas – 26 July 2021 – Three new Products and Services members have been verified and accepted by the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA).

The latest companies to join the growing ranks of IADA’s Verified Products and Services members are Engine Assurance Program (EAP), headquartered in Dallas; Omni Aircraft Maintenance, in Tulsa, Okla.; and Asian Sky Media, located in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

“The IADA Board of Directors extends a gracious welcome to EAP, and to Omni Aircraft Maintenance and Asian Sky Media,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “All of our Verified Products and Services members, has been thoroughly vetted to assure adherence to the absolute highest ethical standards and experience.”

Starling added, “EAP is an all-new member of IADA. However, businesses associated with the other two new Products & Services members have been involved with IADA for some time. Omni’s maintenance business is a sister company of IADA-accredited dealer Omni Aircraft Sales and Asian Sky Media is a wholly-owned subsidiary of IADA-accredited dealer Asian Sky Group. Both companies have been important participants in the activities of IADA.”

IADA Products and Services members are companies whose primary focus is related to the support of aircraft transactions, whether their expertise is finance, legal, tax, escrow, or maintenance. The membership application process for Products and Services membership begins with an applicant completing an 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 & Services applicants twice a year.


EAP is a fast-growing, high-quality hourly maintenance program for operators of private aircraft powered by Honeywell, General Electric, Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney engines. It was founded to fill a void in the marketplace.

The cost of engine maintenance coverage for mature aircraft has remained high despite the fact that the airframe, engines and parts are now available for significantly less cost. EAP takes advantage of these engine parts and services discounts and passes that value directly to its customers.

Engines served by EAP have logged millions of hours of service on more than 30 different aircraft applications. EAP focuses specifically on older engine platforms and saves owners money with our single source solution which offers many cost saving advantages. Operators can save as much as $80-$100 per engine per hour using EAP’s hourly maintenance plan.
