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 firsthand. 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 that we offer.
