Our Proven 4-Step Formula to Sell Your Helicopter
Our FMV (Fair Market Valuation) model combines the most current bluebook values as released by Helivalues and an analysis of all component/engine TBO and airworthiness limitations items. Through this approach we look at the time remaining on the key components and then take into consideration the value of the individual components. This determines a weighted component time remaining on the helicopter. This is the primary driver in the FMV and is used in the determination of the base value of the aircraft.
The secondary drivers consist of the total airframe time in comparison with the current market, avionics/equipment options, the historical usage of the helicopter and it’s cosmetic appearance.
