Aircraft-Registration-in-MaltaConsidering the success of the maritime sector, Malta is very committed in supporting the aviation sector to develop. The Malta Aircraft Registration Act was established in 2010 and it is the main legal framework allowing the registration of aircraft in the country. The Malta Aircraft Registration Act also contains provisions about aircraft mortgages and the implementation of the Cape Town Convention and Aircraft Protocol. The Government has also introduced fiscal incentives in order to attract foreign investors to establish businesses in the aviation sector in Malta.
