Desktop Appraisals do not include physical inspection of the aircraft or associated technical records, however they do take into consideration maintenance status and installed equipment. A desktop appraisal factors in the current maintenance/component status, and includes an adjustment from the mid-time baseline to provide a percentage of value remaining as part of the overall aircraft value.

Onsite Appraisals involve a full physical inspection of the aircraft and technical records to the extent necessary to establish value. Should onsite verification of the asset be required, this can normally be performed in one day.
