Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term.
These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.
Forms used for the various transactions on the UK Register of Aircraft Mortgages are as follows:
- Search of the UK Register of Aircraft Mortgages form
- Entry of Aircraft Mortgage form
- Entry of Priority Notice form
- Change in Particulars form
- Discharge of Registered Mortgage form
- Debit card or credit card authorisation form
As all these forms need to be signed they cannot be directly submitted online. They must be printed and signed, but may subsequently be scanned and emailed to the CAA or returned by fax.
If all the relevant information has been submitted as scanned documents there is no requirement to send in hard copy originals.
To return by email, please send to email@example.com.
If you are submitting forms via email the payment form CA02 must be submitted at the time.
Hard copy returns
If you are submitting forms in hard copy please send them to the Aircraft Registration Section.
