Rule brief

Part 47 contains rules for aircraft registration and marking.

The rules for registration of aircraft provide the framework and administrative machinery necessary for keeping the New Zealand Register of Aircraft established under section 73 of the Civil Aviation Act 1990 (the Act). The rules themselves flow from the requirement in section 6(1)(a) of the Act to register an aircraft and hold a valid certificate of registration, and from the requirements in Annex 7 to the International Convention on Civil Aviation regarding marking of aircraft.
