Aviation is a global business, here at Bachmann’s we aim to bring our expertise of 50 years in the maritime world, where we have supported owners, crew and vessels all over the world to the Aviation sector.

Over recent years, we have invested in new technology in our sytems to manage the operation of our crew, vessels and aircraft and today we are able to use the developments to assist our new aviation clients. We are able to assist in a number of areas.

Aircraft Registration

The Guernsey registry 2-REG, was established in December 2013 to provide a service for the registration of aircraft involved in non-commercial flying activity around the world. Since March 2016, the register has been able to issue Air Operator Certificates (AOCs), which allows Guernsey-registered aircraft to operate for commercial air transport. There are three separate registers, one each for aircraft, engines and charges.

We operate Guernsey AOC companies for our clients.

Aircraft Ownership

We have operated and managed a number of owning structures for our clients that have allowed them to utilise the 2-REG registry as well as other international aircraft registries.  Current the fleet we assit with is made up of some of the world's largest business jets.

Regulatory Compliance

At Bachmann we manage of the regulatory requirements of companies that hold AOC’s, supplying directorial and compliance matters.

Offshore Employment

With Guernsey being located at the heart of Europe, less than 1 hour’s flying time from London, but remaining outside the European Union, we have developed structures enabling our clients to make substantial savings on their employment costs.

Offshore Payroll

Through the use of up to 5 different payroll software systems, two of which have recently been winners of the UK’s National Payroll Awards in both the large and small categories, we are able to tailor our clients’ requirement to the most suitable software for their needs.
