UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

This page relates to the information in the data fields. If you believe the details appearing on G-INFO are wrong please let us know by contacting the Aircraft Registration section. Please state your source when querying the information.

Registered owner

If you are the owner of an aircraft and your details are not shown, please contact us immediately. If you are a third party please advise us of what you believe are the correct details giving us the source of your information.

If you are shown as the registered owner of an aircraft that was sold some time ago, please contact us immediately giving details of who the aircraft was sold to. For further information on what action to take when selling an aircraft see Changes of Ownership.

Your details

Changing address

We do not insist that you use your private residential address on your application to register an aircraft but do recommend that you use the most appropriate address for the distribution of safety information. If you wish to change your address on your existing Certificate of Registration to a different correspondence address please return it to us giving details of the new address and a new Certificate will be issued and the Register entry amended. There is no charge for an address change.

CofA & Permit to Fly

If you see an aircraft that appears to have no current CofA or Permit to Fly, the Aircraft Register database may be awaiting the entry of data received from CAA regional offices and/or approved organisations. This is normally achieved within fifteen days of receipt.

There are circumstances where aircraft without a current CofA or Permit to Fly may fly, e.g. for testing purposes. Additionally, Annex 1 balloons on a private flight beginning and ending in the UK, without passing over any other country do not require a valid CofA.

Address Elements - County

In some cases, you may find that 'county name' is not included in the address or that some address elements are missing. In most cases, we verify the UK address for all currently registered aircraft against the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) and use the "cleaned" version on our database.

County names are not required where the rest of the address is completely accurate. Other address elements such as some localities are not always required in the postal address. If you believe your details are wrong please contact us pointing out the discrepancy, we will then re-check these details with Royal Mail.
