All BK Associates aircraft appraisers are certified by the International
Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT). ISTAT is a non-profit
society whose members have common interests in the manufacture,
purchase, brokerage, leasing, maintenance and appraisal of transport
aircraft. International in structure, it is self-supporting and unaffiliated.
Within ISTAT is a core group of professional aircraft appraisers who
work cooperatively for the elevation of the appraisal profession within
the world aviation community.
Each ISTAT member, who has satisfactorily demonstrated that he is qualified to appraise aircraft, has been granted the right to use one of the professional designations established by ISTAT. Certification by the Society is based on written examinations, submissions of representative appraisal reports, full-time valuation experience, personal background check and participation in the Society's program of on-going education.
Ethical practices and conduct required of the appraisers accredited by the society are clearly defined by ISTAT.
