Do you know what your aircraft is really worth in today's market?

The Aircraft appraisal process is used by Financial Institutions, Legal entities, Governments, Banks and Private Agencies as well as individuals who require an established value based on present market value. Agencies as well as knowledgeable individuals normally require N.A.A.A. Certification.

Understand how damage history, missing log books, Airworthiness Directives compliance and Service Bulletin compliance can affect the value of an aircraft. Without a recognized appraisal process significant legal issues can develop resulting in unnecessary costs.

It's been said that "An aircraft is worth what someone will pay for it." Therefore, when setting a selling price for something as valuable as an aircraft more factual advice than that given by a well-meaning friend is both a necessity and just common sense. Of course, this is just as important on the corporate level. Costly mistakes can be avoided through the use of a professional aircraft appraiser. Improper evaluations of aircraft by persons who are not qualified to make them, or by those who have their own agenda in pricing the subject aircraft, lead to trouble for unsuspecting buyers. High values are far more common than low values. No matter whether you are a buyer, seller, banker, or insurance company executive, you have a major stake in ensuring that the amount paid for the aircraft is reasonable. And how do you know what is reasonable unless an independent, objective, third party examines the aircraft and its records to verify that it is what is expected?
