Stephen Dougherty, head of DQ's aviation team, has again been invited to contribute a chapter to Corporate Jet Investor's "The Official Guide to Aircraft Registration and Tax 2016", following his contribution to the previous Guide in 2014. Stephen's chapter entitled, "Why choose to register an aircraft in the Isle of Man", focuses on why the Isle of Man as a jurisdiction works for business jets and continues DQ's work to advance the standing of the Isle of Man and its Aircraft Registry in the business aviation sector.

Corporate Jet Investor is a market leading business aviation website that also hosts conferences in London, Miami Singapore and Dubai each year which are key events in the industry calendar.

Stephen Dougherty commented: "I am delighted to have been invited again to contribute a chapter on the Isle of Man to Corporate Jet Investor's Official Guide to Aircraft Registration and Tax. It is important to keep flying the flag for the Isle of Man and its aviation industry and registry which continues to go from strength to strength. I have a long standing relationship with the team at Corporate Jet Investor having attended their London conferences from the outset and their inaugural International School for Corporate Jet Finance and I will be attending the upcoming conference in London in February 2016. The Isle of Man is rightly still the world's leading offshore bizav register. Aviation is a fast growing part of DQ's business and I am delighted that our aviation team has been recognised in this month's Legal 500 rankings as a top tier firm."
