Aircraft Registration

The United States remains the most popular place in the world to register corporate jets. However, there are a number of reasons that the US is not appropriate for everyone. The Cayman Islands, since 1976, has been attracting a number of Aircraft Registrations and presents a viable alternative to the US, and other registration jurisdictions.

The Cayman Islands acts under the purview of the British Civil Aviation Authority. The process of registration generally takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete.

The Cayman Islands register (the Aircraft Register) is highly respected and recognised throughout the international aviation industry. The majority of the aircraft on the Aircraft Register are private exclusive jets (such as the Boeing Business Jet, Airbus A320, Gulfstream GIV and GVs, Falcon 900B, Falcon 2000, Hawker 900XP and Bombardier Global Express). There is also increasing interest in the Cayman Register to register commercial aircraft.

The Cayman Register can be used to register an aircraft in the "private" category, and this has been expanded to include all turbo-jet aircraft, all other aircraft above 5,700kg and helicopters that are based on yachts.
