Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority


Lead Sponsor


The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) is responsible for regulation and safety oversight of aviation in Bermuda and all aircraft on the Bermuda Aircraft Registry.  Bermuda is a United Kingdom Overseas Territory and whilst it is regulated by the UK Department for Transport, the safety oversight system is separate from that of the UK.  The regulatory requirements are established as the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements (OTARs), which are in full compliance with the standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO.)

Bermuda’s Aircraft Registry is extensive and ranks 10th in size when compared to the 191 signatory States to the Convention on International Civil Aviation.   The current Registry includes a mix of both private aircraft and commercial aircraft operated under Article 83 bis Agreements.

Bodies incorporated in any part of the Commonwealth (including Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies), or undertakings formed in accordance with the law of an European Economic Area State are eligible to place an aircraft on the Bermuda Registry.  For corporations who do not meet these require­ments you may incorporate a company in Bermuda or in one of the other jurisdictions mentioned above.  Airworthiness and Flight Operations Inspectors are based in offices in Bermuda and complemented by a team of Designated Inspectors strategically located throughout the world.  For more detailed information please visit the Bermuda Civil Aviation Website at

The BCAA team provides a wealth of experience and credibility in the global aviation industry along with personal and responsive customer service.
