Guidance Notes: Mark Reservation

You may reserve an out-of-sequence registration mark for an aircraft to be registered in the Isle of Man using the Aircraft Registry online services portal.  The system will tell you if the registration mark is available or not.  If you wish to extend a reservation mark, or have any questions about the registration process, please contact the Aircraft Registry by emailing [email protected]
