The Isle of Man registers its 500th aircraft
The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry has registered its 500th aircraft since launching in May 2007.
The 500th aircraft was a Bombardier Global 5000, bearing the registration tag ‘M-SEAS.’ It was delivered new from the factory in Montreal Canada and registered last night.
“I would like to congratulate Hartley Elder and all the team at the Registry on this achievement,” said John Shimmin MHK, minister for economic development. “The tremendous success of the register is testament to their hard work, high levels of customer service and to the strong relationships they have built with the aviation services industry in the Isle of Man.”
The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry was also recently nominated by aviation lawyers as the best overall aircraft registry in a survey conducted by Corporate Jet Investor.
Multiple lawyers from around the world voted the registry as the most innovative and the one that offers the quickest speed of service.
