We at Aircraft Appraisers International
believe that the aviation industry deserves better valuations and aircraft appraisals than can be derived from guide books that are published by book publishers. Ask yourself, “how many book publishers have actually appraised or contracted to appraise an aircraft?” Where do they get the information to establish their database?
The publishers and the people who use them are relying on information that is collected by sending out a few questionaires to aircraft brokers or similar aircraft sales orginizations. These questionaires ask only a few generic questions.
These questions are so generic in nature that no information is gathered and entered into the database about such things as:
A. Aircraft damage history
B. Make and model of avionics
C. Inspection status and ADs
D. Engine overhaul status
E. Engine/airframe modification
F. Physical condition of airframe
G. Props and time in service
H. Condition of Other Systems
If you deserve better than what is provided by using the Blue Book, then you should put your trust in Aircraft Appraisers International for your appraisal needs.
