Aviation

Back to Corporate and Commercial

Our aviation lawyers are regarded as leaders in this sector and are ranked in the top tier in the latest edition of Legal 500.  We advise on both Isle of Man and BVI law and provide a full service to clients involved in structuring, ownership, operation and funding of business jets and helicopters.    We regularly attend major aircraft conventions such as EBACE and Corporate Jet Investor.

The Isle of Man Aircraft Register was officially launched on 1 May 2007.  The Register is aimed at professionally flown private and corporate business jets and helicopters.  The Register has been an unqualified success with the numbers of aircraft registered far exceeding its set targets. It continues to go from strength to strength with its unparalleled reputation in the industry.  It has been recognised by Corporate Jet Investor, a leading industry publication, as the top aircraft register.

Our team has wide experience in acting for both purchasers and sellers of aircraft, financiers, owners, manufacturers and corporate service providers. We advise on multi-jurisdictional transactions, the importation and registration of aircraft, drafting and registering security documentation, regulatory advice and incorporating Isle of Man and BVI companies.
