Aircraft Component Repair Frequently Asked Questions
Transferring aircraft ownership?
If I send a bill of sale and a registration application plus $5 to the FAA will that do it?
If you have a properly executed FAA Bill of Sale and have completed the registration in full then that should accomplish the task. Hopefully you have checked to assure there are no liens etc.
Review the data at http://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/aircraft_certification/aircraft_registry/aircraft_regn_forms/ there s even a full FAQ to read.
With which aircraft had I flown?
Last year on 14th June I had flown with one Airbus 320, from LBSF to Munich, and after that from Munich to KLAX with A340-600. Both flights were operated by Lufthansa. On 1 September the same year I had flown with some aircraft from KLAX to Chicago O’Hare, it was operated by AA. After that I flown a transatlantic flight to Frankfurt with a 747, and than back to Sofia with a 737. At that time I was not interested in airplanes, but now I want to know with which airplanes I had flown, I mean I want to find specificly the registration of every one of them. | know all the flight numbers, dates and times, but I don’t know where to seach. Could you give me any suggestions where to search and look.
Flightaware,com its great
So, when you are on a plane, is there any place inside that you can find the aircraft registration (eg. C-GBHM)?
Sometimes a plate by the 1L door, for sure in the cockpit, or you can ask the f/a to ask the flight crew
Do you believe we should compromise on the top 12 issues?
1. Stop illegal immigration and mass immigration without amnisty!
2. Hire more U.S. Border Patrol Agents and Customs Inspectors.
3. Inspect EVERY single truck, vessel, aircraft and shipping container that enters into the United States!
4. Re-open and activate our military, air and naval bases!
5. Stop foreign aid & trade with our communist enemies!
6. Abolish gun registration and gun prohibition laws! Allow private citizens to carry equalizers for protection!
7. Avoid and outlaw all computer and electronic voting systems and count paper ballots at the local precinct!
8. Recind all international “agreements” and treaties that infringe upon our nations security, sovereignty, prosperity and survival!
9. Prevent any and all treaties with Canada and Mexico that would merge our 3 countries into a “North American Union”.
10. Impeach federal judges and other public officials
who violate our constitutional rights!
11. STOP foreign aid giveaways and get the U.S.
out of the United Nations world government!
12. Repeal unconstitutional victimless crime laws
that prosecute and persecute innocent citizens
who have not hurt anyone (except an unjust law).
and I know that there are many more, but I believe that these are
the top 12 that are most important for our survival as a free nation!
Absolutely NO compromise,not now ,not ever
Great post YO thank you for expressing my thoughts so completely.
Ownership and Registry of an Airplane.?
Imagine a commercial airplane has an owner; he want lease his airplane to a overseas company (another country) and lessor asks changing of aircraft registration because of his own logic reasons.
Please answer, is it possible to change the airplane registration without loosing ownership?
Can airplane change registration for one or two/three years without any problem in ownership?
This is added after Judge’s answer:
Lessor can receive Fuel much more cheaper.
Thanks for your time to answer.
I want ask here, people in Airport are not suit to ask, here maybe somebody show a tip that I did not know, or maybe a professional see my question and answer it
In the maritime world, a ship is said to be “flying a flag of convenience” if it is registered in a foreign country “for purposes of reducing operating costs or avoiding government regulations.” The country of registration determines the laws under which the ship is required to operate under and also that which are to be applied in any relevant maritime legal cases that might come about.
In aviation there are a multitude of reasons why you might choose to register your aircraft off-shore under the flag of a foreign country. Some of these include:
Complete Anonymity, i.e. If you suffer from celebrity notoriety; or you are a powerful corporate leader who relies on discreet and untracked movement within the territory of your competitors; or simply for personal reasons requiring anonymity. When your aircraft has been registered off-shore your privacy protection begins. If a journalist, corporate competitor or other interested party seeks the registered owner of your aircraft; their search will end with the contact details of your registered agent or trustee, and not with you.
Sales Tax or other Tax Avoidance, i.e. Generally speaking, it is fairly simple for you to avoid a multitude of forms of taxation that are normally associated with the ownership and operation of a private or business aircraft, by registering it off-shore. Neutral Nationality Registration, i.e. This issue has become very prominent since we have moved into the new age of terrorism and unrest. By registering off-shore, you can fly internationally without instant recognition as being from the U.S.A.
Most foreign registries require that the registrant be a citizen of that country. The United States is the same: A U.S. Citizen by definition of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) section 47.2 can be an individual, or partnership where each individual is a U.S. Citizen, or a corporation organized under the laws of the United States, state, territory, or possession of the United States of which the president and at least two-thirds of the board of directors are U.S. Citizens and 75 percent of the voting interest is owned or controlled by U.S. Citizens. A resident alien is considered to be a corporation other than classified as a U.S. Citizen, lawfully organized and doing business under the laws of the United States or of any state thereof, if the aircraft is based and used primarily in the United States; or a government entity (federal, state, or local). How then do these off-shore registries allow a foreigner to register with them? This is allowed by the employment of a native ‘Trustee’ or ‘Agent’ who acts on-behalf for the foreign ownership entity, under the auspices of a formal ‘Trust Agreement.’ In all cases there are annual fees that are payable to the agent. The U.S.A. Aircraft registration branch is the only authority that I know of, that does not charge any annual registration fees.
Internationally, the most popular off-shore countries of registration are Bermuda, the United States of America, and now the relatively new player: the Isle of Mann. The “M” Registration was first introduced in 2007 by the government of this small island tax-haven which is located in the North Sea between England and Northern Ireland; it is probably better known for its T.T. Motorcycle racing history rather than for its aviation industry.
Even though the aircraft eligible for entry onto the “M” or “Manx” registration must all be Type Certificated by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Isle of Mann has chosen to more closely mimic the Federal Aviation Regulations of the United States rather than the bureaucratic tangles and inconsistencies that are normally found within the rules established by the European Aviation Authorities. Interestingly though, no non-resident islander can register any aircraft that is non-turbine powered and below 12,500 lbs MGTOW, or in the case of Helicopters, a non-twin-turbine powered machine.
Since a convenient loophole in the Value Added Tax (VAT) Regulations was recently exorcised by the European Union from the Danish Ministry of Taxations’ rolls, whereby a ‘flat-tax’ was charged for an aircraft run through their tax-registration system, instead of the normal 25% or so, being charged like everyone else. The Isle of Man registry has quickly taken the lead largely because of its zero tax ratings for both corporations and inheritances, and depending on an aircraft owner’s tax domicile, the Manx government provides a pathway for owners to either significantly reduce or even eliminate the VAT charge on their aircraft purchase.
By the beginning of November, 2009 almost 180 business jets and turbo-props had already been enrolled onto the Manx aircraft register. I am certain that this number shall continue climbing at a high rate.
