The States of Guernsey Aircraft Registry 2-REG has registered its 500th aircraft.
The key milestone took little more than five years from the registry's launch in December 2013.
"Exceeding the 500 aircraft mark is clearly a great achievement for 2-REG," said 2-REG Director Paolo Lironi.
"A broad section of the aviation community has already got to experience the benefits and professionalism of 2-REG, which today provides a world-class commercial approach with 24-7 service, and much-needed availability and flexibility, delivering clear value to a global and diverse base of customers."
2-REG is an ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) registry, well-recognised around the world for accommodating all aircraft categories, including commercial aircraft, business jets, helicopters, and general aviation. In 2015, 2-REG began to issue Aircraft Operating Certificates (AOCs), and six have been issued so far.
Run by the Dutch company SGI Aviation, 2-REG pays royalties to the Guernsey government on operating income. The registry has built its reputation by being extremely responsive and customer-focused, offering its worldwide coverage coupled with competitive fees, making it the most successful registry within the aircraft leasing sector.
"The 2-REG team would like to thank all our registered customers, and in particular, our initial customers, who first believed in 2-REG and understood its real value for their businesses," Mr Lironi added.

2-REG will be exhibiting at EBACE (the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition) in Geneva later this month, and is a sponsor of the Guernsey Air Rally in June.
The registry complements Guernsey's expertise in banking, wealth management, funds, insurance and wider financial services, all of which can play a role in the structuring, financing and holding of aircraft.
