Aircraft Valuation Program

The American Society of Appraisers now offers a series of four (4) courses for professional aircraft appraisers (ME201ACS – ME204ACS). Successful completion of these courses will provide participants the necessary fundamental appraisal coursework necessary to apply for professional accreditation through ASA in the Machinery and Technical Specialties (MTS) discipline with a specialty in aircraft appraisal.

Students working toward a professional designation in aircraft appraisal are no longer required to pass an aviation-specific specialty exam before applying for the Accredited Member (AM) or Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation.

Who is this Program For?

Anyone interested in pursuing a professional designation with ASA with a specialty in aircraft appraisal as well as aircraft brokers and other professionals in the aviation banking, financing, and aircraft maintenance industries.
