Storage/Transition Register

The BCAA has a storage register for the convenience of aircraft owners, operators and leasing companies who desire to store an aircraft while it is in transition between owners or operators, and for the storage of Bermuda registered aircraft with an expired Certificate of Airworthiness.

An owner seeking to place their aircraft on the Bermuda register for the purpose of storage during transition between owners or operators will follow the normal registration process as outlined within the How to Register an aircraft section. Aditionally, please complete and send an AW-105 form to to request an invoice to place your aircraft on the BCAA Storage Register.

When completing the Application for Registration of Aircraft or Change of Ownership (Form 100(B)), the owner must indicate that the intended use of the aircraft is for storage in the Form 100(B) line 12.

The owner is to ensure the following:

  • Arrangements are in place for continued airworthiness management in accordance with OTAR 39 by a Bermuda approved Continued Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO).
  • The aircraft is maintained by an appropriately rated Bermuda approved Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO).
  • The aircraft is maintained in accordance with a BCAA approved maintenance programme that includes the storage procedures and tasks.

Information concerning the airworthiness requirements for aircraft storage is outlined in Bermuda Advisory Circular – Bermuda Aircraft Storage Register which may be found here
