Aircraft Inspections and appraisals

Aircraft pre-purchase inspections or inspections on request of owners and financing institutes: we do both and it is one of our core businesses. An inspection includes a physical inspection of the aircraft, the documents and a desk review. Our detailed inspection report shows:

  • Basic aircraft information (e.g. owner-, operator info)
  • Aircraft specifications incl. hours and cycles
  • Physical inspection report and findings
  • Aircraft record inspection
  • Maintenance status (reserves, pay-by the hour programme etc.)

Based on a physical inspection we use the following parameters for a detailed valuation:

  • Physical condition of aircraft
  • Maintenance status & reserves 
  • Aircraft records
  • Aircraft value data bases (e.g. Bluebook)
  • Market research and own database
