Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization LLC

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 is made up of Aviation Professionals who know aircraft and only work within the aviation industry. The need for a better appraisal organization was obvious and the PAAO was setup to address those issues and improve training, exposure, knowledge, communication, cooperation, and the abilities of those who wish to join the organization.

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.

Our new tool is now available. It's ready for you to try out and see what "Risk" a particular value may generate. Some of our associates have been using the beta for several weeks. Most have been impressed with the information supplied.  TRY IT OUT TODAY! 

PAAO Training & Development

The PAAO ON-LINE Training site is now fully open!

 We are exited to introduce this to our associates.

 You must enroll (using the events pages) to be able to connect to   the training you want, must complete, or desire to take!

 The Basic Appraisal Training is now ready for our Associates!
 This is a REQUIRED COURSE for new appraisers. The good news is   that it is always available without any travel or other expenses.

 For anyone wishing to enroll in the Senior Training Course, you   need to apply for these courses.  In 2024 these will be held by the PAAO and have dates set for the training. The on-line training for the senior level is no longer available.   If you are a current appraiser and need to learn the PAAO

 Systems and Procedures that class has also been discontinued  it is now part of the in-person courses during 2024.

The  requirement for recurrent training that the PAAO needs to   assure everyone follows the same concepts and basics needed to   assure competence and promote the public trust!  We all need   reminders and expansion of our thinking sometimes.
