Aviation Services

Seen as a natural addition to the Island’s premier Ship Registry, the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry was launched in 2007 as the only dedicated corporate aircraft register in Europe, to provide a customer focused service for the registration of high quality (non commercial) private jets, corporate jets and high quality turbine-engine helicopters.

The benefits available to the aviation sector in the Isle of Man are:

  • Access to a world leading private register with:
    – a competitive schedule of charges
    – very efficient and high service standards
    – high regulatory standards
  • The ‘M’ registration prefix is deemed a neutral Nationality prefix and provides for some interesting cherished registrations, i.e. M-AGIC and M-ONEY
  • Secure mortgage register
  • Corporate tax rate of 0% on commercial ownership entities
  • Stable legal and political environment
  • Ability to register for VAT in the Isle of Man
  • Efficient Customs & Excise office which facilitates timely VAT importations
