Aircraft registered VP-BAA to VP-BZZ belong to the Bahamas. However, there seems to be numerous countries with the prefix "VP". It all depends on the first letter of the last three to determine to which country it belongs.
You are said to be a good pilot when your take-off's equal your landings.

So,what is the rule for Bermudan registrations? I know Aeroflot's 'western-built' planes are registered outside of Russia due to high taxes for non-russian built planes. So,does a plane that's registered in Bermuda have to have the range to reach Bermuda? Because Trump's helo is registered in the U.S.

I'd guess the plane is legally owned and registered by a Bermudan company that Trump owns, or he doesn't actually own the jet and it's leased from a Bermudan firm. Either way, the plane would run a Bermudan registry.
I've seen Trump's plane at LGA several times, but never noticed the registry. Usually I notice that sort of thing - first time I ever flew on Air South, the Irish registration was the first thing I noticed...
