Gibraltar seeks to establish aircraft register

The British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar last month issued an unanticipated request for expressions of interest “from individuals and organisations interested in developing and operating a Gibraltar Aircraft Register”.

The official notice stated that the Gibraltar government would “consider proposals for the development of either a private or commercial aircraft register, although the preference would be to initiate the project with a private aircraft register that would transition to a commercial aircraft register once a proven regulatory track record has been established.”

The notice goes on to note that the government is interested in the establishment of a long-term strategic partnership to develop, launch and manage the registry. It also makes clear that any new register would be considered as a sub-part of the UK register and would therefore be subject to scrutiny by the UK CAA. The deadline for expressions of interest is midday on 19 July 2019.
