The first step is to determine eligibility of owner to register an aircraft in the Territory and then submit required ownership documents through an online Registration Application. Please visit Aircraft Registration Process for full details.
A specific registration mark for the aircraft can be reserved, given details of the aircraft and the name of the proposed registering owner, or if that is not yet available then the name of the registering agent. Please send request to email@example.com and visit ‘Registering an aircraft in the Cayman Islands for more details.
Most invoices produced by the CAACI are quoted in United States Dollars (US$). However, the Fee Regulations and fees are quoted in Cayman Islands Dollars (CI$). The rate of conversion to United States Dollars (US$) is US$1 = CI$0.82.
Payment of invoices should be made within 30 days of the invoiced date.
The aircraft registration mark and invoice #’s being paid should be referenced on the wire transfer.
Methods of payment are described at web link Payment Methods Page.

Yes, the appropriate aircraft rating must be included in the licence.
A validation certificate is issued for twelve months and cost CI$250.00 or US$ 304.88.
The validation certificate is normally returned to the address of the operator of the aircraft, unless otherwise requested by him.
A mortgage can be registered for an aircraft registered in the Cayman Islands as security for a loan for that aircraft. Please see Mortgaging of Aircraft.

An appropriately approved Maintenance Organisation with a scope of approval commensurate with the work order request.
NOTE: this approval is not in lieu of the required OTAR Part 145 arrangements, but to cater for one-off circumstances. Applications are considered case by case for approval.
Aircraft Maintenance Organisations suitably approved by; EASA, TCCA, or US FAA. Additionally the CAACI under provision OTAR Part 145 can investigate for approval an Aircraft Maintenance Organisation that is not approved by an NAA listed above. This would be by direct oversight; OTAR Part 145 Option 2 is your reference.
