About the Open Aviation Ads Initiative

The Open Aviation Ads Initiative is a technical standard designed to create an open, interoperable data-format for aircraft specifications.

In a nutshell, the Initiative intends to set standards for trading data of classifed ads for new and used aircraft between aviation brokers, dealers and online aviation marketplaces, so that sellers only have to enter their data once and the data is shared between different sites.
