Process of certified appraisal
A Certified Appraisal involves a physical examination of the subject aircraft and its records. The appraiser certifies through his own due diligence that the appraised value is accurate based on information obtained first hand. While other forms of appraisals rely on aircraft specifications provided by outside sources, a Certified Appraisal leaves no doubt as to the accuracy of the information used to determine market value. This type of appraisal allows the appraiser to document the condition of the airframe, paint, and interior of the aircraft with detailed digital photos which are included in the body of the summary appraisal report. The on-site inspection also gives the appraiser an opportunity to thoroughly review the aircraft logbooks, and the ability to determine the quality of maintenance history as well as the presence of any past or present damage to the aircraft. This type of appraisal produces the most accurate and detailed appraisal report.
Types of Appraisal/Valuations
Desktop appraisal do not involve a physical inspection of the aircraft or review of maintenance records. It is based on assumed aircraft condition and information provided to the appraiser. A desktop appraisal value is typically based upon a mid time, midlife aircraft.
Extended desktop appraisal/Valuation:
Extended desktop aircraft appraisal include consideration of maintenance status information provided to the appraiser by the owner or operator. It does not include any inspection of the aircraft or maintenance records..
Full aircraft appraisals include an inspection of the aircraft and its maintenance records and are in compliance with internationally recognised uniform standard s of professional appraisal practices(USPAP). This inspection is aimed solely at determining the over all condition of the aircraft and records to support the opinion of the appraiser
