Asset Inspection Service
JSSI has over 70 technical advisors strategically located worldwide and trained to perform asset inspections on virtually any make and model of aircraft. Each asset inspection includes copies of logbooks, images of the aircraft, current maintenance status reports, and documentation of any red-flag items. As part of the inspection, clients also receive a complimentary enrollment into JSSI’s Asset Monitoring Platform.
Aircraft Appraisal Service
JSSI’s team of in-house appraisers are accredited by the American Society of Appraisers to ensure a fair evaluation and price for any aircraft purchase. Every professional evaluation follows the standards of the nationally recognized Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice and includes a comprehensive and detailed final evaluation report. Appraisers have the full resources of JSSI available to complete each appraisal, including access to an automated valuation tool to pull comparable aircraft sales, and the expertise of product line specialists for all engine, airframe, and APU evaluations.
Maintenance Cost Planning
JSSI has decades of actual maintenance cost data to draw upon and help plan and budget for any aircraft operation. Maintenance cost planning options include one-time cost analysis and ongoing recurring cost services to help operators prepare for the future. JSSI also offers assistance in maintenance planning for high-utilization operators. These reports are critical elements to maximize the balance between safety, availability, and cost for these operators.
Maintenance Event Management
JSSI product specialists work closely with maintenance departments to deliver the optimum solution for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events. The strategically located global team can be onsite to assist within hours of getting a call for event management assistance.
