Guernsey register enabled for commercial ops.

The Channel Islands Aircraft Registry branded as “2-REG” is now permitted to issue air operator certificates (AOCs) allowing commercial operations by Guernsey-registered aircraft. This represents a major change for the registry, which previously only allowed aircraft to be used on a private and corporate basis. The proposal to provide for the issue of AOCs was first approved in principal by the island’s parliament – The States – last December and the legislation was passed in early March. The changes are enshrined in The Air Navigation (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Amendment Ordinance 2016 and The Aviation Registry (Guernsey) (Amendment) Ordinance 2016. Guernsey’s Director of Civil Aviation, Gus Paterson, said: “We will bring to market an innovative and focused AOC that sets high safety and operational standards and is built upon our unique commercial philosophy.”
