Aircraft Appraisals – “When Plane Value Matters”

The Plane Appraiser – Tracy Ligon, NSA of Tracy Ligon Consulting, has been appraising aircraft since 1995.  As an avid pilot, owner, buyer, seller,  from the early 1980’s it became obvious that no two aircraft were the same. Appearance, mechanical condition, airframe condition, engine condition, avionics condition, then there are the total hours, hours since overhaul, type and reputation of the service delivered, previous damage history, how any damage was repaired, the interior condition, the appearance of the interior overall, and those were just a few of things that impact the value of one aircraft over another.

After years in service management bringing a critical technical eye to the process for buyers, sellers, banks, attorneys, owners, and many others seemed a necessity.  Using an expert in VALUE to assess an aircraft on a professional level is simply an educated choice .  As an early member of National Aircraft Appraisers Association a formal method to assure those values was located and “The Plane Appraiser” was opened.  The present membership in The Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization (PAAO) was a step up from the NAAA.  Our reports follow USPAP standards.  Many sources are used in every appraisal to assure the value will be established for each aircraft inspected.

That assures the user of a valid valuation of the aircraft within the current market.
