The term aircraft is defined in the Aruba Aviation Act. Aircraft falling under this definition qualify for registration in the AAR. The department of Civil Aviation of Aruba (“DCA”) has the discretionary powers to restrict registration of aircrafts operating in certain geographical regions that are either deemed unsafe or politically unstable. In addition the DCA limits registration of aircraft that are manufactured before 1970. A prerequisite for registration in the AATR is registration in the AAR plus compliance with a minimum maximum take-off weight.
