Amendments to Malta’s Aircraft Registration Act come into force
L2b Aviation member Ganado Advocates shares recently published Aircraft Registration Act Amendments.
On the 6th of July, 2021, the Aircraft Registration (Amendment) Act (Act 37 of 2021 of the laws of Malta) was published amending primarily the Aircraft Registration Act (Cap 503 of the laws of Malta). These amendments have been commissioned by the Civil Aviation Directorate within Transport Malta following feedback received from various industry players in order to (i) facilitate further the registration of aircraft, including creating a greater pool of available registration marks; (ii) introduce specific regulations for the registration, de-registration and enforcement of IDERAs; and (iii) introduce a new warrant of ejectment or expulsion.
The Aviation team of Ganado Advocates assisted in drafting the amendments to the Aircraft Registration Act.
The Aircraft Registration Act, 2010 (Chapter 503 of the laws of Malta) (the “ARA” or the “Act”) was enacted in 2010 in order to regulate, amongst other things the registration of aircraft and aircraft mortgages and to implement the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and Protocol thereto on Matters Specific to Aircraft Equipment (the “Cape Town Convention” or the “CTC”).
