Aircraft Registration Question

Tue Oct 16, 2001 11:43 am

Let's say there's a US-based airline called X airlines. They are a pretty big company and they want to start inter-europe service, such as london-zurich, etc. if the planes would not be in the US at all, would they have to register them in a European country? instead of having an N123XX rego, would they ahve to get a G-XXXX or D-XXXX reg?

Panam, TWA etc. aircraft operating in Europe all had N registrations. Many leased aircraft operate in different countries to that of their registration.

It all depends on where they register the aircraft. Most us airlines and charter operations register in DE where there is no corparate tax. So It may be cheaper for the airline to do it that way.
