Completing appraisals on all types, makes and models of aircraft, both piston, turbine and soon to be electric powered, with a unique and particular expertise in helicopters, Hart Aircraft Appraisal has been serving the aviation and financial industries with valuation expertise for over 40 years.
When comparing professionalism, experience, knowledge, reliability, accuracy, technique, acceptance of reports by financial and government institutions, and overall quality of work, Hart Aircraft Appraisal stands far above the competition.
We can, and do, provide "desktop appraisals" as they certainly have a place in the appraisal arena and it is possible to accomplish a very credible valuation of an aircraft with one, but to produce a totally complete report, it is our opinion that an on-site evaluation of the subject aircraft and an actual review of its associated logbooks and records is necessary to generate a report that is detailed and accurate enough to withstand any scrutiny or examination from a financial or legal entity. And, of course, all reports follow the standards and criteria established by USPAP, ASA, ISA and AOA.
The types of appraisals and services we offer include Market Value Appraisals, Future Value and Retrospective Appraisals, Damaged Aircraft Analysis and Diminution in Value Reports, Expert Witness Services, Aircraft Operations Consulting Services, and expertise on situations that may not fit any of the above.
