Valuations from Appraiser of the Year 2021

IBA is also one of the very few appraisers the main commercial airframe and engine manufacturers have approved to receive comprehensive pricing, market, utilisation and technical data on a regular basis. Our team of six ISTAT Appraisers manage and oversee all our aircraft and engine valuations, including the InsightIQ Values application. 


We've designed our valuation methodology to provide the most accurate and reliable values available on the market to support transactions, aircraft fleet planning, monitoring and reporting on portfolio performance. We collect and collate aviation data points from trusted public and confidential sources, discussing each one to ensure we can 'normalise' and cleanse it to produce accurate and relevant base, market, soft values and lease rates.
