Isle of Man named as best Aircraft Registry

Posted by in Industry news on 9th August 2012

Leading industry magazine, Corporate Jet Investor, has conducted the first ever survey to find out the views of leading business jet lawyers towards the various aircraft registries around the world.

They asked a list of recommended legal practitioners to name the best aircraft registry across four different categories. Around 20 lawyers from three continents replied and provided comments to accompany their votes.

The Isle of Man registry was the overall winner, narrowly picking up more nominations than the UK CAA and emerging as the winner in two separate categories. The general consensus amongst the lawyers was that the registry was the most "user-friendly" and ideal for aircraft not intended to operate commercially.

The results were as follows:

Overall best aircraft registry
1. Isle of Man
2. UK
3. USA

Quickest speed of service
1. Isle of Man
2. UK
3. USA

Best customer service
1. UK
2. Isle of Man
3. USA

Best value for money
1. US
2. UK
3. Isle of Man

Most innovative
1. Isle of Man
2. UK
3. USA


Commented Paul Swindale on the survey findings: “The Isle of Man aviation proposition continues to go from strength to strength and both of these recent milestones continue to prove our authenticity both as a registry, but also as a high quality jurisdiction for managing the underlying holding entity. I recently had the pleasure of attending an event with a significant number of experts in the aviation world from various corners of the globe who not only knew the island very well, but had all experienced service of the highest standard in all of their dealing with the registry and underlying providers.“
