The Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization offers a foundation of education for those wishing to enter the aircraft appraisal field by offering basic educational information about value specific areas of aircraft. Those with aircraft backgrounds may well find these areas are not always considered by simple paper projections of value thus the need for specific education in order to properly determine the value of each aircraft that is inspected by a professional appraiser.
The PAAO works to provide information and education to owners, operators, pilots, mechanics, flight schools, financial institutions, legal professionals, and the general public as to the value, importance, and need for a professional examination of each aircraft to determine the market value specific to each aircraft. Ongoing education for existing appraisers will be done using the Uniform Standards of Professional
Appraisal Practice. USPAP is the generally recognised ethical and performance standards for the appraisal profession in the United States.
Slattery team members Paddy Slattery and Tim Deeble have attended the NAAA aircraft appraisal course in the United States. Members of the NAAA now the PAAO are internationally regarded as certified professional aircraft appraisers, valuable skills for the Slattery’s team and in turn its clients.
