Cayman promotes air registry at Swiss exhibition

| 06/06/2011

(CNS):The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands was in Geneva last month promoting the country’s aircraft registry. Director-General Richard Smith said the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition is an important occasion for the sector and gives the authority the chance to meet with the registry’s clients. This year, the show has ranked second-highest in attendance from both exhibitors and attendees which continues to be a reminder of the value the aviation industry has on global economies. The show attracted 12,751 attendees from 108 countries and 511 exhibiting companies. This also included 62 aircraft on the static display at the Geneva International Airport, officials said in a release.

“The business aviation industry is continuing to show signs of growth as this year’s EBACE tradeshow was one of the largest in attendance,” said Smith. “This particular show offers an invaluable opportunity for the CAACI and its business partners to interact with clients, potential clients, financiers, legal advisors and other regulatory authorities. The partnership of public and private sector organizations whose businesses are impacted by aircraft registration in this jurisdiction is extremely important to the continued growth of the CI Aircraft Registry.”

Joining the CAACI to represent the legal and financial community was Caroline McCann of local law firm Appleby Global; in addition Marcus Cumber of Island Air, local FBO operator and ground handler for the Cayman Islands attended this year for the first time.

There were also representation materials provided by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism’s UK/European office as well as the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry as there is much synergy with the target audience for owners of mega yachts and private and corporate aircraft.

Every year CAACI partners with the local business community to offer a prize package for a raffle at EBACE and would like to thank the sponsors: Cayman Airways, Tortuga Rum Company, Carib Sands Beach Resort in Cayman Brac, Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort, The Reef Resort, Lacovia Condominium Resort, Cayman Kayaks, and Lobster Pot. One lucky aviation business associate was awarded a lovely holiday package.
