Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority

Latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) information. Find out more >


The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) is responsible for the regulation and safety oversight of aviation in Bermuda and all aircraft on the Bermuda Aircraft Registry. Previously known as the Bermuda Department of Civil Aviation, which was established in 1931, the new BCAA became a newly formed Authority on October 1st, 2016. 

Bermuda is a United Kingdom Overseas Territory and though it is regulated by the UK Department for Transport, the safety oversight system is separate from that of the UK. The regulatory requirements are established as the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements (OTARs), which are in full compliance with the standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Bermuda’s Aircraft Registry is extensive and ranks 10th in size when compared to the 192 signatory States to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. The current Aircraft Registry includes a mix of both private aircraft and commercial aircraft operated under Article 83 bis Agreements.

With a wealth of experience and credibility in the global aviation industry, combined with unparalleled personal and responsive customer service, the BCAA team is uniquely positioned to meet your aircraft registry needs.
