The UK Register of Civil Aircraft contains specific information on over 20,000 aircraft registered in the United
Kingdom. The Aircraft Registration Section at the CAA administers the system and continuously updates information on
registered aircraft that change registration details during the year.
Printed reports or data files of extracts from the UK Register of Civil Aircraft and mailing lists (in the form of pre-printed
adhesive labels) of current registered owners are also available on an ad hoc basis. Fees for the provision of printed
reports, data files or mailing labels are based on the number of aircraft retrieved and the complexity of the enquiry. Please contact the Aircraft Registration Section for details.
A standard report is also available, detailing all the additions, deletions and other changes that have occurred on the
UK Register each calendar month. To order this report, see forms and fees.
Printed information is presented in a standard format giving technical and registered ownership details against all aircraft

such the selection criteria can be very flexible and can be tailored specifically to any personal or marketing
A search could be made on a specific aircraft type, a class of aircraft
or a combination search (for example: to retrieve aircraft built after 1975, with a maximum take-off weight of less than
5,700 kg and powered by piston engines).
The Register contains the following information for each aircraft registered in the UK:
