To provide our clients with friendly, fast, reliable, accurate and professional
service at a reasonable price.
We can provide either a Certified Appraisal or a Market Analysis of
an aircraft's fair market value.
Certified Appraisal: The only real way to determine an aircraft's fair market value is to perform a
certified appraisal. To accomplish the appraisal we will go to the
aircraft to do a visual examination. The exterior will be inspected for damage,
corrosion, loose or missing fasteners, paint condition, airframe condition and
tires condition. We check for oil and fluid leaks around engine and landing
gears. We will also inspect the interior of cockpit, passenger area and
baggage compartment for condition of seats, carpets, head and side panels,
glass, glare shield, etc. We will thoroughly search log books and records for
latest airworthiness advisories (ADís), damage history, for completeness of
books, maintenance history, etc.. We will make every effort to accomplish this
task in a time frame agreed on between appraiser and client.
Market Value Analysis:
Provides a low cost method to estimate market value of an aircraft. The
basic aircraft information is provided by the client but we will work with the
client to insure the information provided is as accurate as possible without our
actually visiting the aircraft. A Market Analysis is suitable for establishing
or negotiating a purchase price for an aircraft. A Market
Analysis will not be acceptable when dealing with government agencies, settling
legal disputes or for financing purposes since the information about the
aircraft is submitted by an "interested party." We are willing to put the many numerous hours in doing the legword in front of our screens (blue light blocking prescription glasses really help!) to gather all comparable sales and get you the most accurate and fair price, so you can be confident that you know the price on the aircraft is correct.
of Value: For both Certified Appraisals and Market Analysis, the
information collected is then incorporated into the NAAA database which uses
factual, current sales data on over 10,000 aircraft makes and models, 12,000
Avionics components, and 2,000 Engines to give our client the most up-to-date market
All client information is confidential.
Our Certified Appraisals are accepted by every financial, legal, government, and private agencies.
Banks and Lending
Institutions rely on a Certified Aircraft Appraisal to determine the TRUE
value of any aircraft. As a Buyer or a Seller you should too!
