Regional Aircraft Sales Manager
Iggy Burkhardt is the HondaJet Regional Sales Manager for Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. He brings more than 15 years of aircraft sales experience in both piston and turbine aircraft to the team.
Born in Alexandria, VA, Iggy started taking flying lessons in 1987 at a small skydiving drop zone in Heartwood, VA. He continued flying in college and ultimately earned his multi-engine, commercial, instrument and helicopter ratings. He started his sales career as a Regional Sales Manager for Daimler Chrylser Motors Corporation in their Boston Zone Office. Flying a jump plane on the weekends, he looked for a way to combine his passion for flying and selling. In 2003 after responding to a job posting in Automotive News for an aircraft salesman, Iggy found himself moving to Addison, TX as the new Regional Sales Director for Cirrus Aircraft covering Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. He quickly rose to the top ranks of the sales team, selling as many as 43 new aircraft in a single year. His next challenge came in 2011 when he was offered a job with Eclipse Aerospace selling the Eclipse Jet across eight states in the southwest.
In 2018, another opportunity presented itself to join the HondaJet Southwest team representing the HondaJet for Texas and Oklahoma. Iggy is an FAA-Certified Commercial Pilot with Multi-engine, Instrument and helicopter ratings. He enjoys outdoor activities including boating, golfing and scuba diving.
