The primary legislation governing the Guernsey Aircraft Register are the Aviation Laws published by the States of Guernsey.


The detailed aviation safety and registration requirements following from these laws are detailed in the Guernsey Aviation Requirements (GARs). Collectively, the laws and GARs ensure compliance with the Chicago Convention and ICAO Standards.

Please note the current GARs remain published on https://www.gov.gg/article/151977/Guernsey-Aviation-Requirements-GARs until 1 January 2018. The amended GARs with publication month August 2017 are published on www.cidca.aero/guernsey-aviation-requirements/ and will become effective 1 January 2018, except GAR section 121/135.950a7. This section will become effective on 1 September 2018.


The eligibility of persons and their aircraft to be registered on the Guernsey Aircraft Register, and the associated due diligence process, are summarised in the qualification criteria.
