Since its launch in December, 2013 the 2-REG Guernsey aircraft register has become one of the fastest growing aircraft registries in the world with well in excess of one hundred aircraft and helicopters now registered of all types from light aircraft to the Airbus A380 in both private and commercial air transport categories.
As a Guernsey based aircraft registration and documentation consultancy, Oceanskies Aero Limited is well placed to assist owners and operators with the registration of their aircraft on the 2-REG aircraft registry.
Oceanskies Aero Limited became the holder of one of the first Private Operators Certificate (POC) enabling the company to operate complex aircraft on behalf of its clients.
We welcome enquiries from owners and operators of jet and turbine business and corporate aircraft as well as helicopters who may either wish to register their aircraft in Guernsey and operate under our certificate or, with assistance from Oceanskies, establish their own operating certificate.
We have written this guide to highlight why the 2-REG Guernsey aircraft registry has become such a popular choice for aircraft registration.
The Island of Guernsey is part of the British Isles. Guernsey is located in the English Channel in the Bay of St Malo. The Island is an independent jurisdiction and is governed by its own ‘Parliament’, the States of Guernsey but is dependent on the British Crown for the administration of foreign affairs and defence. It has become an established international finance centre, with a secure base built on political stability, low taxation and a firmly established fiscal and regulatory environment.
The 2-REG Guernsey Aircraft Register
The 2-REG Guernsey aircraft registry is a British register administered with regulatory oversight provided by the island’s own Director of Civil Aviation (DCA).
The registration prefix for a Guernsey registered aircraft is the number two followed by a dash and four alphabetical letters enabling aircraft owners to choose personalised markings such as 2-FREE, 2-SWIM and 2-DATE.
Eligibility – Ownership Criteria & Types of Aircraft
An owner from anywhere in the world can in theory register any private or corporate aircraft on the 2-REG Guernsey aircraft registry provided that the Maximum Take Off Weight (MTOW) is greater than 2,700KG or greater and is turbine powered, or any turbine powered helicopter and the aeroplane or helicopter is not amateur built, ex-military or vintage.
