Why AVAC? Because independently owned AVAC has a 34 year track record in providing personally tailored current and future MARKET values and lease rentals for commercial jets, turboprops and business jets for a diverse range of clients. We value independent analysis, first and foremost.

Calculating Current Values and Forecasting Residual Values requires an appreciation of the dynamic forces affecting supply & demand for all Aircraft Types. To meet the need for an analytical and realistic approach to Market rather than base value forecasting, The Aircraft Value Analysis Company Limited team combines hands-on experience gained with manufacturers and airlines, post-graduate academic research, in-depth knowledge of aircraft and more than 40 years experience of the aviation market.

AVACs clients comprise mostly financial institutions as well as ECAs, lessors and airlines. The diverse client base ensures that the company is not reliant on a single account, thereby reaffirming its independent approach to value analysis. The geographical distribution of AVACs clients and subscribers comprise Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. In addition to providing individual appraisals and market analysis to financial institutions, banks, lessors and airlines, AVAC also publishes The Aircraft Value Reference, available as Aircraft Values Basic or Aircraft Values Pro, and Aircraft Value Journal.
