What is the PAAO?
The Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization (PAAO) was established to ensure the public trust when aircraft appraisals are involved. We carefully select aviation professionals, then through training, comprehensive research, and detailed reporting provide credible reliable opinions of value.
The PAAO has "mentors" for those wishing to learn how an aircraft appraisal should be accomplished. The PAAO focuses on understanding the Appraisal Process, understanding all of what impacts Aircraft values, understanding the aircraft market, understanding the specifics of each aircraft, and how to manage that information for the best results in an appraisal. If you have some aircraft backgound and want to expand your knowledge the PAAO can help.
As opposed to some other groups, the PAAO does Aircraft Appraisals only because we know aircraft and stay within that specialization.
So if you need a credible, reliable aircraft appraisal by a trained and experienced professional - CALL US! Our Professional Aircraft Appraiser Finder will help you locate a Professional in your location.
Be sure to check our JOIN US information on the menu.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ASSOCIATES!

(The date of last class and the most recent certs are needed for each of you who have completed the USPAP course or refresher course as required. ) You must keep those up to date.
