ISTAT Appraisers Program Overview
Within ISTAT is a core group of professional aircraft appraisers who work cooperatively for the elevation of the appraisal profession within the global aviation community.
Each ISTAT member, who has satisfactorily demonstrated that s/he is qualified to appraise transport aircraft, has been granted the right to use one of the professional designations established by ISTAT. A description of these qualifications and a listing of ISTAT Certified Appraisers may be found here. The ISTAT Appraisers Program (IAP) is overseen by the IAP Board of Governors (IBG). More information on the IBG may be found here.
Ethical practices and conduct required of ISTAT Certified Appraisers of all grades are defined in the IAP Principles of Appraisal Practice & Code of Ethics. The IAP Handbook contains the IAP's bylaws and definitions.
