The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry has recently celebrated a significant milestone with over 300 aircraft now registered. Despite the economic climate the Aircraft Registry has continued to exceed expectations with its growth since it was established in 2007, and now has the fastest growing offshore aircraft register in the world.

Minister for Economic Development, Allan Bell MHK, commented: "The continuing success of the register demonstrates the strength in the partnerships that exist between the team at the Aircraft Registry and those in the private sector involved in aviation. The dynamic and business-friendly approach within the sector typifies the broader advantages of the Isle of Man as an international business centre. I wish to congratulate both Brian Johnson and his team, as well as those in industry, who work so hard to deliver truly world class service to their clients."

Director of Civil Aviation, Brian Johnson, commented: "Many of the aircraft registered with us belong to some of the most successful companies in the world. We are confident that 2011 will be another successful year with a further 11 new private and corporate jets already planned for registration."
