“IADA is very pleased to include Duncan Aviation’s Aircraft Sales Representative Rene Cardona in the ranks of IADA-certified aircraft brokers,” says Wayne Starling, IADA Executive Director. “He joins an elite group of professional brokers who have passed a rigorous, independent evaluation to achieve recognition as a highly skilled broker at the top of his profession.”
The IADA recently moved toward full professional accreditation for aircraft dealer organizations and their individual representatives. A rigorous certification examination for brokers was developed and is managed by Joseph Allan Aviation Consulting. The broker examination measures the skill and competencies that are required of aircraft brokers in order to effectively conduct their work. Joseph Allan has experience in curriculum development as well as the development and management of examinations measuring knowledge-based competencies.
For more than 30 years, Cardona has been involved in the sales and acquisition of business aircraft. He has been a member of the Duncan Aviation Aircraft Sales and Acquisitions team since 1988. Before joining Duncan Aviation, Cardona worked as a market researcher, agent, broker and consultant for International Jet Markets, a small, independent aircraft brokerage company based in Atlanta while studying industrial management at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
