A registered owner is that person / entity, as specified on the aircraft's Certificate of Registration. Article 7 of Irish Aviation Authority (Nationality and Registration of Aircraft) Order, 2015 refers.
An aircraft that is no longer owned by the registered entity as listed on the I.A.A. aircraft registration certificate shall not be operated until the Authority is notified of the change and a new certificate of registration issued.
Any legal entity [person - company - group / club or combination thereof] intending to take up the registered ownership of an aircraft on the Irish Register of Civil Aircraft are recommended to check the current registered ownership of the aircraft.
Where change(s) in the ownership of an aircraft are not notified to the Authority, the registration requirements cease to be fulfilled in respect of such an aircraft. Irish Aviation Authority (Nationality and Registration of Aircraft) Order, 2015 refers. Where the registration requirements cease to be fulfilled, all other certificates issued to the aircraft are void, including the Airworthiness Certificate. Applicants are also reminded that the aircraft insurance policy and any personal policy may also be void in such circumstances.
