“We are very pleased we joined GLADA and found the network to be both welcoming and proactive.  The GLADA membership has been proven to be a very beneficial resource for our business and is the ideal platform to connect with our industry partners around the world.  The networking GLADA offers to its members, both in person and virtual, as well as the sharing of industry updates and information has been a tremendous value”.

"GLADA is a great value for Uptimize Marketing. They help promote our marketing services to the network and we received a website project within the first month of joining! All that for a very reasonable annual fee. Its a great value!"

"We've had great results with the Alert system over the past year, especially now that new planes to market move very quickly. We received three good leads before they hit the market so far this year from Alerts."

"Like everyone else, I’m busy and only have so much time to allocate to other endeavors outside our core business of buying and selling aircraft; so for me to become involved in GLADA it needed to prove itself beneficial in practical ways. I have found that the confidential sharing of aircraft on the GLADA online platform and the relationships formed among the members are well worth the minimal cost to join. As the aircraft brokerage business has evolved and technology has made us all more efficient, I’ve often wondered whether a reliance on online searches and mass emails has come at the cost of depersonalizing the whole process in a way that has actually hurt the industry. GLADA membership facilitates personal interactions among its membership and helps to cultivate the trusted relationships which have always been the basis for putting deals together, and are so important in this challenging Market."

"We enjoy being a part of a community which not only helps one another generate deals but also to learn from one another's experiences and provide local intel on markets/customers that otherwise would be difficult to find. Having regular email and zoom meeting exchanges also helps us be aware of the important updates in the industry and most importantly having a trusted circle of broker partners who help source "off-market aircraft" or buyers looking for "off-market aircraft." We are happy to be a member of GLADA."

“GLADA brings us quick and easy access to trusted brokers and provides us a great opportunity to market our inventory and current developments. We are thankful to be a part of this community.”
