Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry

The Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry was established in 1976 and is the registry of choice for many owners and management companies with corporate aircraft ranging from Cessna Citation, Gulfstream, Embraer, Airbus and Boeing Business Jets. Standards are rigid and specifications exact to qualify, but this has led to the register being highly respected and recognized throughout the aviation industry internationally.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) is the statutory body responsible for aviation regulatory oversight throughout the Cayman Islands and for aircraft registered in the Cayman Islands.  The CAA is rated as a Category 1 Aviation Regulatory Authority by the US Federal Aviation Administration.

The registration mark ‘VP-C’ is intentionally low profile, which some operators may consider of value when operating in certain high risk or politically instable territories.  Aircraft registered in the Cayman Islands may be operated anywhere in the world, excluding war zones and similar areas.
