Milestone for aircraft registry

The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry has registered its 700th aircraft.

It was a Bombardier Challenger business jet, which was surveyed and registered in Hong Kong.

The registry has seen strong growth since it was established in May 2007.

Minister for Economic Development Laurence Skelly says the Registry contributes significant income for the government.

Brian Johnson, Director of Civil Aviation, adds that the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry continues to be the best in the world for quality of service and speed of registration.

Two new aircraft per week are being added on average, although in the first 15 days of May the registry team received 15 new aircraft applications for registration.
