Aircraft mortgages and aircraft title registrations
Our office has ample experience with aircraft mortgage transactions in Aruba. We can also register aircraft in Aruba through the Aircraft Title Registry and international interests in the International Registry in Ireland. Aruba has been a party to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment, including the Protocol Thereto on Matters Specific to Aircraft Equipment since September 2010. This entails that all local mortgages can be registered throught the International Registry.
Although a pledge can be registered in the International Registry as well, it will not provide the same security as a mortgage in a non-member Convention state and can therefore be considered very risky as a security document for protecting the interests of the mortgagee.
In Aruba all auctions are conducted through a civil law notary. The auction procedure and current auction listings can be reviewed at our auction page.
