No matter where you fly your personal or private jet, registering your aircraft in Bermuda can provide many advantages over other jurisdictions.

Why is Bermuda such a popular choice for registration?:

  • High quality international reputation and excellent service levels
  • High regulatory standards
  • Confidentiality and security
  • Favourable tax regime
  • Competitive and simple fee structure
  • Recognised jurisdiction for aviation finance
  • Secure mortgage register
  • Stable legal and political environment
  • OECD ‘white listed’ jurisdiction
  • No requirement that aircraft be based in or primarily used in Bermuda.
  • Aircraft may be operated anywhere in the world (excluding war zones and similar areas).

The Bermuda Aircraft Register, in existence since 1931, is used by many multi-national companies and high net worth individuals. Currently there are approximately 770 aircraft on the Bermuda Register with approximately 135 of those registered in the private category.

Aircraft may be registered on the Bermuda Register using a company incorporated anywhere in the Commonwealth or the European Economic Area.

The registration of corporate and private aircraft in Bermuda is sought for a number of purposes and Bermuda registered aircraft are based and operated throughout the world. The success of the Bermuda Register is reflected in the quality of the aircraft: many of the private registrations relate to large executive jets such as the Boeing 747SP, Boeing Business Jet, Gulfstream G650 and G5/550, Falcon 7X and 900B, Bombardier Global Express and Airbus Corporate Jetliner or commercial type aircraft registered for private use such as the Boeing 727, 737, 747-800, 757, 767 and 787.
