Each report includes a signed Certificate of Value.

I Am Delighted That VREF is Adding, and Delivering Superior Data and Information

“I have been using multiple aircraft value publications since the 1980’s, and I have never seen any of these publications, until now (specifically the VREF) actively attempting to overhaul the amount, accuracy, and format of the data that it reports to its subscribers. It has been my experience that this type of publication usually always – over time, removes data, drops specific makes, and models, and just overall reduces the information that it provides to subscribers. Yes, new makes, and models get added as they are sold as new deliveries, but I have never seen an aircraft value publication go to the lengths that I am seeing VREF attempting to achieve. I am delighted to be a subscriber of VREF.”
– Jeremy R.C. Cox
