Certified aircraft appraisal services and valuations for jets, helicopters and jet props

After the savings and loan crisis in the 1980s, and again in 2008, the banking industry responded with new rules and additional safeguards for better risk management. One of the most significant changes involves aircraft appraisals.

Prior to 2008, a simple market valuation by a resale broker, often with just a quick look at the current edition of the Aircraft Blue Book, was sufficient to secure as much as a 90% loan-to-value ratio for a pre-owned aircraft. That is no longer so. The lender is required to have a certified appraisal. Today, most banks, leasing companies, and insurance underwriters require that all loan collateral, including business jets, have an aircraft valuation performed by a qualified, certified appraiser before financing is approved. Those appraisers must comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), which was created in 1989 by the Appraisal Foundation, and is the generally accepted standard in Canada and Mexico as well as the U.S.. The ASA’s Machinery and Technical Specialties division offers the only program to train and certify business aircraft appraisers.

Steven Bloom has earned the Aircraft Specialty Accreditation by completing a rigorous curriculum and peer evaluation. ASA-accredited appraisers must adhere to the professional standards set forth by ASA’s Code of Ethics and Principles of Appraisal Practice, and well as USPAP (in North America), or the International Valuation Standard elsewhere in the world. The two levels of ASA certification, Accredited Member and Accredited Senior Appraiser, are based on the number of years of appraisal experience, with continuing education courses required to hold either accreditation. Steven Bloom is an Accredited Senior Appraiser.
