Ownership and Leasing

Guidance on owning or leasing an aircraft

Buying and Selling Aircraft  

Aircraft are regularly bought and sold like any other item. For an aircraft on the UK-register anyone selling an aircraft must inform the CAA immediately. If the aim is to maintain the aircraft on the UK-register then the new owner must apply to the CAA to re-register it. The UK-register is not a register of legal ownership.
