The Professional Aircraft Appraisal Organization, LLC (PAAO) has been setting the standard for aircraft appraisal. Their two reports, the PAAO Certified Aircraft Appraisal Report, and the PAAO PAAO/USPAP Aircraft Appraisal Report lead the industry in reporting on aircraft valuation. Due to his extensive qualifications and background combined with his focus on continuously improving our industry, George Nardone is a member of PAAO’s board.

As a PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, Nardone & Company will represent you—and only you—in the purchase of your next airplane. Many aircraft purchasers fall into the trap of believing that an aircraft broker or sales person is acting in their best interest. In reality, that can’t happen. The sales person is committed to do the best job for his or her client. He can’t work for both sides at the same time.

As a PAAO Buyer’s Agent, we work for you, the purchaser. We have pledged (see our Buyer’s Agent Ethics) to work solely for our client throughout the entire purchase process. From assisting you in determining which aircraft will suit your needs to the closing on the aircraft you decide to buy, we will be there to make the process go smoothly.



A PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent is a Certified Aircraft Appraiser who is an aircraft specialist. To become part of PAAO, a new member must meet minimum qualifications, complete an appraiser training program, and then qualify as a PAAO Buyer’s Agent. Many of the PAAO’s members have acted as buyer’s agents for years. PAAO’s Buyer’s Agent Qualification Course standardizes this process and insures quality and safety in the purchase of an aircraft.


What will Nardone & Company, Inc. do for you?

Buying an airplane is hard work, if it is to be done right and produce positive, reliable results. Most people who are in the aircraft market don’t know the mandatory steps that must be taken before signing on the dotted line. Others are in too much of a hurry to get the whole process over with. As a PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, we will discuss all aspects of your aircraft purchase with you before beginning the aircraft search process so there will be a clear understanding of the type of aircraft you are looking for as well as the basic component make-up that you would like to see and your budgeting requirements.

Next, we (as your PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent) will go out and search the marketplace for aircraft that will meet your needs—pairing that with your stated budge requirements. This can be time consuming depending on the condition of the market itself. If there are a large number of aircraft of the make and model you are looking for on the market, we will develop and sift through information on each of them to determine which may be the most suitable for your application. Further investigation of each aircraft’s background must be made so we can locate the best of the group and then determine which of those he should personally inspect.

However, this research is only part of the job. After a particular candidate aircraft is located that seems to fit the mold as closely as possible there is more investigation and research to be done regarding the aircraft’s history, maintenance, and ownership. As your PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, we will thoroughly research the aircraft, inspect it personally, write an PAAO Certified Appraisal Report, and advise you on negotiations that are taking place for its purchase. We will also arrange for a thorough pre-purchase inspection, and following completion of that inspection, we will follow the deal through its closing to ensure that the ownership is transferred properly.

In these few words it seems like a simple process, but in reality it is not. As we stated earlier, buying an airplane takes hard work if it is to produce positive results, and as a PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, we will step through the process, keeping you informed along the way, seeking your input and authorization for the final purchase agreement.

Final Thoughts

Remember, an aircraft dealer or broker doesn’t provide this level of service and works for his client, the seller. As a PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, we work for you, the buyer. Our priority is to find you the aircraft that most suits your needs and to negotiate the best deal possible on that aircraft. As a PAAO Qualified Buyer’s Agent, we will take no kickbacks, or other consideration from other person(s), guaranteeing you that your best interest is our best interest.
