Aircraft Owner / Trustee Services

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations allow non-U.S. citizens or companies to transfer the legal title of an aircraft to a trustee who is a citizen of the U.S., through a vehicle known as an aircraft owner trust.

Through an operating agreement, the purchaser or beneficiary maintains and operates the aircraft, while the trustee holds the legal title and files for FAA registration.

Emerald Aviation can serve as owner trustee to secure U.S. registered aircraft for non- U.S. citizens or corporations. For further information on this service please contact us.
