When you look at the facts, it just makes sense to have your aircraft professionally appraised by an experienced Senior Aircraft Appraiser - such as Business Owner and President - Rick Rossner.
Otherwise, you don't know what your aircraft market value is! Don't sell yourself or the value of the subject Aviation Property short by settling for a canned/non-specific amount from a 3rd party aircraft value publisher!
They're just not that accurate, nor do they individually and accurately evaluate the merits of the subject aircraft in its current market value and condition. If you're buying, selling, looking to finance, potential litigation, asset value verification, donating, or you wish to stay in touch with the ever-changing market value of your aircraft. You owe it to yourself to know the current and real value!
These days the aircraft market is very fluid, which means it pays to keep tabs on the real-time market conditions of your aircraft of interest, collateral, or asset value, or potential risks can be substantial.

All Aircraft Appraisers are not created equal! Appraising Helo's involve a great deal more industry and model expertise. A helicopter has a lot more working parts, which is why the appraiser needs to be more experienced and knowledgeable about time/life limited parts as well as the countless upgrades and STCs that are available these days.
The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) was established to promote and maintain a high level of public trust by establishing requirements for aircraft appraisers. The Appraisal Standards Board (ASB) of the Appraisal Foundation develops, publishes, interprets and amends the USPAP on behalf of appraisers and users of appraisal services.
A Certified Aircraft Appraisal begins with a thorough examination of the exterior and interior of the aircraft. Special attention is paid to the condition of the airframe, paint, engines, propellers and instrumentation. The avionics and related flight instruments are inventoried to insure they are properly accounted for in assessing the value of the aircraft.
The aircraft market analysis is used to inform owners, buyers, or sellers and collateral holders of the estimated value of the subject aircraft. This process is more accurate than a Book Value since the "actual condition" and “actual equipment” of the aircraft will be fully considered.
