After a hiatus of two years, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) will exhibit at the European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (EBACE) at the PALEXPO in Geneva, Switzerland on 23– 25 May, 2022, to promote the Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry (CIAR).
The CAACI delegation will be led by Director-General, Mr. Richard Smith; he will be accompanied by technical and administrative personnel of the CAACI in order to present well rounded and comprehensive information related to the aircraft registration processes. The CAACI will be accompanied by the Hon. André Ebanks, Minister of Financial Services and Commerce, the Ministry’s Parliamentary Secretary Katherine Ebanks-Wilks, Mr. Gene DaCosta, CIG Representative - Asia and Ms. Deborah Bodden, CIG Representative – European Union. In addition, Mr. Charles Kirkconnell, CEO of Cayman Enterprise City’s Special Economic Zone, Cayman Maritime & Aviation City will also be in attendance.
EBACE is the premier event to experience new and future aviation technologies including everything from high-tech small aircraft through ultra-modern intercontinental jets, advanced air mobility and eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) aircraft, state-of-the-art avionics which brings together business leaders, government officials, manufacturers, flight department personnel, and all manner of people involved in nearly every aspect of business aviation.
The CAACI distinguishes itself as offering the Registry of Choice for customised and tailored service primarily in the private/corporate aviation industry, and more recently with specialised offerings to the aircraft leasing industry. VP-C Online, the CAACI’s bespoke electronic data management portal has proven to be an efficient, effective, secured and convenient method of managing the processes for aircraft registration, and operational authorizations.
We would invite any persons or organisations interested in learning more about registering aircraft in the Cayman Islands, and associated airworthiness or flight operations issues, including information on Cayman approved Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMOs) and Approved Maintenance Organisations (AMO) to visit our exhibition booth.
The CAACI has been assigned booth number T47 and wishes to extend an invitation to all interested persons, including existing clients or potential clients and business partners associated with the registration process. Persons can also email to reserve meeting times with CAACI representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org
Background info to augment
The CAACI has full designation for safety oversight as a UK Overseas Territory (OT), and is one of only three OTs to enjoy such delegation. The CAACI is responsible for both technical and economic regulation of the Cayman Islands’ aviation industry. In addition, the Cayman Islands is classified as Category 1 by the USA Federal Aviation Administration under their “International Aviation Safety Assessments” programme that evaluates a country’s civil aviation authority’s ability to effectively regulate its aviation industry. The requirement for such rating lies with the CAACI being assessed as having technically qualified and highly experienced staff to effectively oversee the aviation industry in accordance with established standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
