ICF International's aviation valuation services include due diligence, forecasting, and competitive analyses. We provide informed guidance to those investing in aviation operations or assessing collateral value for loans or rated bond offerings backed by aviation assets.
ICF is one of the few firms in the world with multiple appraisers certified by the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT). We have advised leading banks, hedge funds, bond managers, and investment firms; major U.S. and international airlines; and insurance companies, law firms, and tax authorities.
ICF assists aviation valuation clients with:
- Assessing the value of tangible assets such as airplanes, engines, parts, and hangars
- Assessing intangible aviation assets such as slots, restricted entry rights, frequent flyer programs, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations
- Evaluating part-out companies, charter companies, training academies, duty-free shops, and other aviation-related enterprises
ICF's thorough understanding of all aspects of the aviation industry enables us to assess assets from every angle, drawing from our toolkit of proprietary databases developed from our work across all major U.S. airlines and numerous international carriers. Our valuation clients benefit from our multidisciplinary teams of former airline, airport, maintenance, and other aviation industry executives and our deep relationships with participants in the industry buying and setting assets. Whether engaged for a desktop appraisal or an in-depth, on-site inspection, ICF's experts in aviation valuation competently guide clients through prices and to greater understanding and return on investment.
