What Types of Aircraft Appraisal services do we offer?

  • Contemporary Appraisals: This appraisal determines the current retail, wholesale, or liquidation value of an aircraft. This is the most common type of appraisal we perform.
  • Retrospective Appraisals: Determines what an aircraft was worth on a particular date in the past.
  • Damaged Aircraft Analysis and Diminution in Value: This service analyzes an aircraft damage event to determine whether a diminution in value is warranted, and if warranted the amount of diminution. Damage classification can range from simple hangar rash to major structural damage. Our many years of involvement in the aircraft maintenance field is a tremendous asset in these highly technical cases.
