ICF delivers comprehensive aircraft management services, including:

  • Assistance with negotiating purchase or lease contracts, completing aircraft specifications, and managing buyer-furnished equipment (BFE)
  • Aircraft and operator technical inspections for pre-purchase and mid-lease assessment
  • Management of delivery and return of leased aircraft
  • Remarketing the range of assets, from general aviation aircraft to commercial and VVIP wide-body jets
  • Repossession logistics, including asset valuation, preparation of deficiency claims, foreclosure processing, aircraft storage, and records management

Aircraft and their parts are highly regulated, expensive assets that require detailed understanding and specialized experience to meet the challenges of domestic and international regulation, certification, and registration. ICF's multidisciplinary teams of experts bring the benefit of experience in all aspects of the aviation industry. Through our many aircraft management engagements for clients worldwide, we've also developed a keen understanding of the importance of confidentiality, discretion, cultural nuances, and security.

Asset Advisory and Valuation

ICF'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. 

We have been the leading provider for spare parts appraisals to financiers, airlines and aftermarket traders. Backed by our spare parts transaction database with over 12 million recent transactions, we support valuation of nearly $10 billion worth of airframe and engine inventories annually.

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.
