who is the National aircraft appraisers Association (NAAA)?

Since 1979 the NAAA has been the industry leader in providing Certified Aircraft Appraisals.  The NAAA has been and remains the ONLY organization in the U.S. (possibly in the world) that tracks actual selling prices of aircraft.  With over 200 members across the U.S and around the world, the NAAA is the largest and oldest organization that is focused exclusively on the evaluation and documentation of aircraft.

Remember how difficult it was back in the 1980's to get a bank to approve an aircraft loan?  One practically had to have a member of the family sitting on the Loan Committee in order to get an aircraft loan approved. Today, thanks to NAAA reports, loans are readily performed throughout the nation and a very high percentage of those loans require a Certified Aircraft Appraisal that can only be provided by the NAAA and its Certified Aircraft Appraisers.  This is mainly because NAAA Certified Aircraft Appraisal Reports meet the intent of the FDIC documenting the proof of collateral for aircraft related loans. .

The NAAA also has an impressive track record within the state and federal court systems which no other company or organization can claim. That is since 1979, out of hundreds of appraisals used in legal proceedings, there has been only one incident where an NAAA Certified Report was not accepted.  For this reason NAAA appraisers have become the appraiser of choice in court cases. Another area of significant growth over the past few years are appraisals being performed for persons buying and selling aircraft.  It makes sense for a potential buyer to have the aircraft appraised before making the decision to spend $1,000 or more for an airline ticket and two days of their time to find out the aircraft is unsuitable.

In 2005, the NAAA again showed its leadership through the certification of members to provide aircraft appraisal reports that adhere to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) Guidelines.
