Certificate of Airworthiness for Export and Deregistration

Sadly, aircraft do leave our register but be assured we will offer the same level of service as you depart as when you joined.

Timely liaison with the Aircraft Registry is advised to enable us to act upon your instruction with the same efficiency as you have enjoyed whilst being on an M-Reg. This will assist to achieve an expedient process, ensuring your timescales can be met.

Registry Publication 12 Export C of A and Deregistration gives you more information then, if required, please complete Form 11 Application for Deregistration and email it to [email protected] to begin the process.

A Certificate of Airworthiness for Export does not permit the aircraft to fly; it is a formal declaration between the exporting State to the importing State only.

We would recommend you get written confirmation from the new state of registry to see if they require a Certificate of Airworthiness for Export to be provided along with confirmation as to their requirements on how recently the Export C of A must have been issued. If  a Certificate of Airworthiness for Export is required, it must be issued before the aircraft is deregistered from the Isle of Man Aircraft Register.

An Export C of A may be issued without the need for a survey or any technical evaluation being carried out by the IOMAR (subject to no change in TCDS being requested) but in such circumstances the issue date on the Export C of A will be the same as the C of A that was issued as the result of the last aircraft survey.

A new survey must always be conducted if you require either:

  • an Export C of A dated more recently than the C of A that was issued as the result of the last aircraft survey; or
  • an Export C of A to a new TCDS.

See Registry Publication 12 for further information and guidance.
