Aircraft Registration

The CAA is the sole authority for the registration of civil aircraft in the Republic of Kosovo. The Flight Safety Department within the CAA maintains the register of civil aircraft registered in Kosovo.

Before an aircraft can be used for flying, it must be registered. The provisions on aircraft registration, nationality and markings are laid down in the Law No. 03/L-051 on Civil Aviation. More detailed rules on registration are contained in Regulation No. 11/2011 on Aircraft Registration and Markings.

The register shows the aircraft owner, possessor, operator, and details of the aircraft. Moreover, any mortgages granted on the aircraft as well as their renewal, cancellation and changes in priority order are entered in the aircraft register.

If the aircraft has not previously been in the Kosovo civil aircraft register, the owner must apply for registration using a form provided by the CAA.

The following documents must be attached to the application:

bill of purchase or other title deed (or a copy);

an attestation or notification of removal from register by a foreign authority or an attestation that the aircraft is not registered in the country of manufacture;

power of attorney, if applicable, or other document indicating the right of ownership and the right of signature;

if the aircraft has an operator, possessor or agent (other than the owner), please attach a notification on the aircraft operator.

Change of ownership

When an aircraft changes owner, the new owner must notify CAA of the change of ownership. This notification is made using the same form as for a new registration.

If there is more than one owner, full contact details for all owners must be given on the form or in a separate attachment. All owners must also sign the notification form or present a power of attorney where necessary.

The following documents must be attached to the notification:bill of purchase or other title deed (or a copy);

earlier certificate of registration in original;

power of attorney, if applicable, or other document indicating the right of ownership and the right of signature;

if the aircraft has an operator, possessor or agent (other than the owner), please attach a notification on the aircraft operator.


The documents are subject to a fee. The service fees are based on the Regulation No. 7/2011 on the fees charged and levied by the CAA. The processing time is approximately one week.

Sales notification and removal from register

The seller of the aircraft may notify CAA of the sale using a sales notification form. If the seller wants the termination of ownership to be recorded in the aircraft register, the bill of purchase must be enclosed with the notification.

Application for removal of an aircraft from the aircraft register can be made to CAA using a specific form. In the event that the aircraft has been sold to another country, the new country of registration must be stated in the section “Reason for removal”. The original registration certificate must be enclosed with the application.
