Bermuda is home to the oldest and largest offshore Aircraft Registry and this month achieved a historic milestone by registering its 900th aircraft to the current Registry. This registration marks the most aircraft to ever be registered to an offshore aircraft registry at one time.
The Bermuda Aircraft Registry consists of a mix of both private and commercial aircraft located all over the world. The 900th aircraft to be added to the registry was a Dassault Falcon 8X.
Director General, Thomas Dunstan, comments on the latest milestone “The Bermuda Registry has earned a solid reputation internationally, and we continue to build on that year on year. We work hard to establish trusted relationships with our global partners and this is how we have been able to achieve building the current registry up to 900 aircraft.
“There are several offshore registries that offer some unique advantages, so it’s our job to make Bermuda the more attractive option. First and foremost, we focus our efforts on overall aircraft safety. We work closely with international organisations, such as ICAO, to ensure we comply and surpass all safety requirements.”
Since the Registry’s inception in 1931 over 2,000 aircraft have been registered, which ranks it as the largest offshore Aircraft Registry and 10th in size worldwide.
The Bermuda Aircraft Registry is owned and managed by the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA). Last year, BCAA launched a marketing campaign to highlight their personal approach and customer-centric business model using the tagline “Putting you at the centre of everything we do”. The campaign highlights BCAA team members from various departments and gives insight into different roles and personalities in a humble, friendly way.
Mr. Dunstan comments further, “We believe that the service we provide is only as good as the team that provides it. Ultimately, we strive to be flexible, transparent and responsive to make the process of registering an aircraft as quick and easy as possible, while maintaining the highest standards of regulations, professional service and courtesy.
Our marketing campaign has had a great response, and people have even come to our booth at events like EBACE and recognised us from the ads.”
