Knowledgeable, trustworthy and qualified appraisers are in high demand from OEMs, banks and leasing companies, insurance underwriters, and on-demand charter operators. But what qualifies an individual to become an appraiser?
The appraisal profession is a complex one and education and experience are both key components. However, technically anyone can brand themselves as an aircraft appraiser, regardless of their knowledge, skills, experience, or abilities. To address this, the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) established an aircraft-specific discipline and designation program, to help owners and financial institutions ensure their aircraft receives an accurate valuation. Each of JSSI’s aircraft appraisers is fully accredited by the ASA.
