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.


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.
