Aircraft Appraisal Services

“We look after every detail”

Chip Allen

The only true measure of the value of an aircraft is through the use of a certified appraisal, by a member of the Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization. The President of SWT Aviation Inc. is a PAAO Certified Senior Aircraft Appraiser, and as such, can provide detailed valuations on aircraft being bought, sold, financed, or insured.
