Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority

Aircraft Mortgages

In Bermuda, aircraft financiers can protect their interests through two mortgage registers - aircraft and aircraft engines. By registering a mortgage, aircraft financiers may obtain priority over unsecured creditors, take possession of aircraft in the event of a default by the owner or borrower and sell the aircraft to recover funds to satisfy the lender’s debt.

Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority Aircraft Mortgage Applications are available through our online Aircraft Information Records System (AIRS). In order to gain access or if you require additional information, please contact aircraftregistration@bcaa.bm.
