Our database holds records of UK registered aircraft
A new version of the G-INFO search was launched on 21 November 2017.
Released as part of a programme of work to improve our web based applications, the new G-INFO search retains the existing functionality plus it has the following additional benefits:
previous and new G-INFO searches will be running in parallel for a few weeks, before the current version of the G-INFO search is decommissioned early in the new year.
The following aircraft have been notified as de-registered as transferred to the UK. However, as
of the date of this notice no application to register any of these aircraft has been made and
therefore these aircraft are currently stateless and must not fly in the UK.
Please visit our guidance on how to apply to register an aircraft. For further
information contact email@example.com.
Although these aircraft are likely to be grounded pending re-registration, if you are aware that
any of these aircraft are flying in the UK under their de-registered marks please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
As at 2 January 2018
Please refer to What do the Data Fields Mean? for further details.
Only the current or last registered owner for a particular registration mark is shown on G-INFO. If you wish to check previous registered owners please call (020) 7453 6666 or visit the Aircraft Registration Section in London where there is public access to the Register, this is available between 10:00 and 16:00 weekdays.
The UK Register was computerised in
1985 and some registered ownership and airworthiness records prior to that do
not appear. However, all aircraft that have been registered should appear.
For information on searching for aircraft with G-INFO please go to G-INFO Database Search.
If you are the owner of the
aircraft and your details are not shown please contact us immediately. If you
are a third party please advise us of what you believe are the correct details
giving us the source of your information.
Please contact us immediately giving details of who the aircraft was sold to. For further information on what action to take when selling an aircraft see Changes of Ownership.
The CAA is required, by law, to maintain a Register of
Aircraft in the UK, to include on it the names and addresses of all persons
appearing to it to be qualified to be the owners of the aircraft and to make the
register available to any person to inspect. The CAA is therefore required to
include your name and address on the register and to make the register available
for inspection. This is stated on the application form which an applicant for
registration has to complete.
The Register has always been
available for inspection personally or by telephone but the CAA believes that it
is necessary in the public interest to make the Register available for
inspection on the internet.
We do not insist that you use your private residential address on your application to register an aircraft but do recommend that you use the most appropriate address for the distribution of safety information. If you wish to change your address on your existing Certificate of Registration to a different correspondence address please return it to us giving details of the new address and a new Certificate will be issued and the Register entry amended. There is no charge for an address change.
This means that a transaction relating to this aircraft is currently underway at the CAA Aircraft Registration Section. If you are the buyer or seller of this aircraft please contact us for details. If you are not connected with the transaction please note that potential changes of registered ownership are confidential until the Register has been updated, at that point the new registered owner details will appear.
Enter the registration mark of
the aircraft in the G-INFO database search screen and press Search, if a
photograph is present then click on the hyperlink marked photo at the foot of
the results screen. If your initial search retrieves more than five
aircraft there is an indication on the G-INFO Search Results Summary screen as
to which aircraft have photographs present.
For details of how to submit a photograph for inclusion on G-INFO please see G-INFO Photographs.
Aircraft Register database may be awaiting the entry of data received from CAA
regional offices and/or approved organisations. This is normally achieved within
fifteen days of receipt. There are circumstances where aircraft without a
current C of A or Permit to Fly may fly, e.g. for testing purposes.
Additionally, non-EASA balloons on a private flight beginning and ending in the
UK, without passing over any other country do not require a valid C of A.
As long as the words "Trustee of" appear after their name there is no problem. If, however, it appears that the aircraft is registered to an individual when it is in fact group owned please contact us immediately. For further information on how group owned aircraft can be registered see Group Ownership.
If you believe the details appearing on G-INFO are wrong please let us know by contacting the Aircraft Registration section, please state your source when querying the information.
No, G-INFO on the web is a read only tool, to obtain downloadable information see G-INFO on CD or the other information services offered.
We verify the UK address for all currently registered aircraft against the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) and use the "cleaned" version on our database. County names are not required where the rest of the address is completely accurate. Other address elements such as some localities are not always required in the postal address. If you believe your details are wrong please contact us pointing out the discrepancy, we will then re-check these details with Royal Mail.
It is intended that the data is updated at the end of each working day. On the results screen the extract date is shown which confirms when the data is accurate to.
Space limitations on the page has meant that some data fields are longer than the space available. Where this happens you can click inside the field and scroll the text to the left and right.
