Aircraft Registration

The choice of jurisdiction, its regulations and fiscal liabilities prevail and become crucial while purchasing assets of high-end value like aircraft, helicopters and yachts

Our team will provide the required assistance to register in the name of the owner, a company or special purpose vehicle (SPV) can provide a number of distinct advantages. Access to corporate limited liability and enhanced levels of confidentiality may be the most immediate, but a company structure also offers significant potential benefits in respect of inheritance tax and succession issues, as well as reducing transfer fees in any future sale of the asset.

Cheeda Aviation services are primarily tailored to private clients including financial institutions with corporate jets, turboprops or helicopters but we can also assist commercial passenger and freight operators as well as general aviation entities and fliers. Our team will advise on the most appropriate registry for your aircraft. Key considerations will be the proposed use and operating base of the aircraft, the cost of registration, customer service and ease of process, geographical location and language.

Whether you are purchasing a new or a used aircraft, or simply re-registering an existing aviation asset, Cheeda Aviation will liaise with aircraft manufacturers, brokers, technical specialists and registries.

In addition to its comprehensive knowledge base, Cheeda Aviation has developed good relations with aircraft registries in Europe, the Caribbean, the US and elsewhere. Once an aircraft has been registered, we shall further assist with ongoing liaison with aircraft registries, technical representatives and aircraft managers with particular reference to annual inspections and certifications.

Cheeda has access to extensive worldwide databases and other sources of information and is able to recommend technical specialists to appraise used airframes. We can also recommend suitable managers for the aircraft in respect of both operations and ongoing technical support.
