ADDRESSING YOUR AIRCRAFT APPRAISAL NEEDS.
Fred Bearden created Aircraft information Management (AIM) in 1982 to serve the needs of the emerging market for independent aircraft appraisals. In 1986 Bearden merged AIM with a newly formed Airclaims consultancy, AVTIS, and took over management of that consultancy. By 1990 Avtis became Airclaims Information Services Inc., a part of Airclaims North America, with Mr. Bearden as President of Airclaims North America. In 1992 Bearden bought out the North American consultancy assets and practice of Airclaims and renamed the company Aircraft Information Services, Inc. (AISI). AISI retained all previous U.S. consultancy assets and clients and began operations in California with qualified associates worldwide. Today AISI is owned equally by Mark Halsor and his business partner Dave Miller. AISI has continued to grow in scope, services and clients and has established an international reputation for responsive, reliable, consistent, accurate and unbiased value opinions and technical advice.
