International Certified Aircraft Sales Professionals (ICASP)
ICASP was created to help promote a higher standard of accountability and professionalism within the Aviation Industry, while bringing together information for easy access for both Buyers and Sellers - focusing on the:
Aircraft broker, aviation attorney, photographer, insurance, finance
and other aviation industry professionals.
While legal, medical, real estate, financial – and even insurance and automotive - industries have regulating authorities, most buyers and sellers of aircraft are unaware there are typically no United States or International licensing, certification, or business requirements (other than those relating to all businesses on the local level) which apply specifically to the aviation industry.
ICASP (pronounced eye-kasp) is not designed or equipped to replace individual or corporate “due diligence” when hiring a sales professional, however, recent studies indicate that less than 5% of the buyers of private aircraft have done any due diligence whatsoever in reference to the people they depend on to advise and assist with – literally – millions of dollars worth of complex equipment!
Recent business events remind us that diligence needs to be exercised before hiring any company or person to assist in financial matters.
