Frequently asked questions

I have not given consent for my name and address details to appear on the internet, why are they there?

The CAA is required, by law, to maintain a Register of Aircraft in the UK, to include on it the names and addresses of all persons appearing to it to be qualified to be the owners of the aircraft and to make the register available to any person to inspect. The CAA is therefore required to include your name and address on the register and to make the register available for inspection. This is stated on the application form which an applicant for registration has to complete.


The Register has always been available for inspection personally or by telephone but the CAA believes that it is necessary in the public interest to make the Register available for inspection on the internet.
