Sydney, 09-Oct-2018
CAPA - Centre for Aviation
 (CAPA) and ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), today announce an exciting new data partnership. 

The partnership means ICF will become the sole provider of aircraft valuations and lease rate data to complement CAPA’s online Fleet Database.

CAPA is a recognised provider of high quality global commercial fleet data, with a fast-growing global customer base. This new, holistic one-stop service will launch this month. 

Global consulting services company, ICF is also simultaneously launching a new aircraft valuation platform, truebook™, providing real-time access to values and lease rates.

Announcing the new partnership, Peter Harbison, executive chairman, CAPA says: “We are delighted to be partnering with global consulting and digital services provider, ICF.

This latest era of cooperation with ICF follows years of continuous investment and enhancement to CAPA’s Fleet database by a dedicated, global team of data specialists.

In this new development, ICF will deliver generic market values linked to individual aircraft, current base values and market lease rates, updated monthly.”

ICF launches online aircraft appraisal platform

ICF's truebook™ aircraft valuation platform that will give users real-time access to values and lease rates of current and out-of-production aircraft and engines using ICF’s unique appraisal methodologies. The truebook platform is powered in association with CAPA and CAPA Fleets and will help users reach value insights quicker through search-by-serial number functionality.

“Obtaining an accurate aircraft appraisal is crucial for all members of the aviation finance community--lessors, investors, and airlines--to ensure a fair acquisition or sale; traditionally, it requires time-consuming research and manual data collection to derive an accurate number that accounts for both commercial and technical aspects of an aircraft,” said Stuart Rubin, vice president of ICF’s Aircraft Practice. “As stakeholders require more data, quicker, before completing transactions, truebook combines ICF’s rigorous methodology with the speed and cost effectiveness of a digital platform. We are delighted to be partnering with CAPA in this exciting development.”
