The Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry is operated through an interactive document processing portal called VP-C Online. This online data management system provides a secure way to manage the registration, licensing and certification processes of each aircraft “24-7-365”.
The user friendliness and the convenience of the portal enables clients to very easily submit urgent requests, obtain timely approvals or alternatively print off temporary documents to facilitate the operation of the aircraft with minimal downtime.
The first phase of the submission of registration documents through VP-C Online is the Registration Application. All of the registering owner due diligence documents are required to be submitted at the time the Registration Application is submitted. For a complete list of New Client Due Diligence items required along with instructions for submission in VP-C Online, please see the Due Diligence Checklist. To request a link to an online Registration Application, an email should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org giving details as follows: name, company email address, telephone number. To learn more about the VP-C Online portal, please visit VP-C Online.
Once the Registration Application has been successfully submitted with all of the required documents being uploaded through VP-C Online, the due diligence process can commence (Phase 1). This process may take about 2 or 3 days depending on the completeness of the application. Once the due diligence process is complete and the application is approved, the Registration Application is then escalated to the Air Safety Regulation (ASR) Division for completion (Phase 2) of the registration process. At this time the aircraft documents and request for the initial survey and approvals can be submitted by the applicant.
The turn-around time between the submission of the application and the issue of the Certificates of Registration and Airworthiness is normally between 3 and 6 weeks and largely depends on the timeliness and completeness of the submissions by the applicant of all the required information for both phases of the registration.
