ISTAT PDP represents an exciting opportunity for aviation professionals with 1-5 years of industry experience to dive deeper into the airline industry, the design, manufacturing, maintenance and valuation of commercial aircraft, and the trading & financing of them. Participants can expect to gain new technical skills as well as hone their negotiation, presentation and communication skills. Upon completion of the program, students can expect to have obtained a thorough understanding of the business of trading and financing commercial aviation. Participants will also profit from valuable one-on-one time with peers and instructors at networking events during each module. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.


ISTAT PDP features instructors of the highest caliber – individuals who are industry leaders and ISTAT members with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Interactions and engagements with these industry icons will be one of the key differentiators of this program. Participants will benefit from exposure to the broader community of professionals within the commercial aircraft trading and financing industry.
