Private aircraft appraisal is an important aspect of aviation sales. However, aircraft appraisal depends on a few important aspects including education and awareness of the private aviation market–so it’s best left to the professionals.
But with that said, if you’re looking to buy and/or sell a private aircraft, then there will come a time when you’ll need to have aircraft upraised, and there are a few different ways you can go about it.
- DIY Aircraft Appraisal – The cheapest, easiest, and least accurate form of aircraft appraisal is to do it yourself. Using online aircraft appraisal tools like Aircraft Bluebook or VREF can give you a good starting point to gauge private aircraft value, but should not be used as a final appraisal method.
- Desktop Appraisal – Certified aircraft appraisers can provide you with a more thorough and accurate appraisal than DIY methods, but keep in mind that it’s not an in-person evaluation, which can affect accuracy.
- Professional Appraisal – A professional aircraft appraisal is an in-person aircraft inspection that’s performed by a certified appraiser. This is the most accurate aircraft appraisal method.
