Doug Levangie of Pentastar Aviation was recently credentialed as a professional certified aircraft appraiser by the National Aircraft Appraisers Association (NAAA). With more than 30 years of industry experience, Levangie leads Pentastar Aviation’s advisory services department, which provides insight on technical evaluations, aircraft pre-purchase inspections, valuation estimates and consulting for domestic and international transactions.
“When our customers need information on aircraft transactions of any kind, Doug is always our go-to resource for advisory services,” said Greg Schmidt, president and CEO at Pentastar Aviation. “We have found that his experience – and the breadth of knowledge he brings to Pentastar Aviation – is unmatched in the industry.”
“Knowing the value of an aircraft is important when considering the sale or acquisition of one and gaining this NAAA certification provides me the added credibility and access to the tools I need to provide an honest and objective recommendation to our customers,” said Levangie.
The NAAA board awarded the designation to Levangie for demonstrating a level of competency reflected by his completion of a four-day hands-on training class. Levangie is also pursuing the NAAA senior aircraft appraiser certification, which includes Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) endorsement.
“We are pleased to welcome an aviation professional of Doug’s caliber to NAAA,” said Brian Jacobson, NAAA president. “Doug has the extensive experience we require to achieve the senior level certification and we look forward to offering him our continued support in that endeavor.”
