On 9 November 2020 the French Aircraft Registry, previously located in Paris (50 rue Henry Farman, 75015), moved to Athis-Mons (9 rue de Champagne 91200 Athis-Mons), approximately 20km south of Paris.
Due to this relocation, the registry has been closed from 9 November 2020 until 13 November 2020 (however, the registry may be in a position to answer to emails as of 12 November 2020).
Applicants to the registry that wish to register aircraft, and any related leases and mortgages, will have to use new registration forms which will refer to the registry's new location.
As a result of this relocation, since 1 January 2020, aircraft mortgage beneficiaries must elect domicile in the jurisdiction of the Evry Civil Court (tribunal judiciaire – in the Essonne department) in order to designate a point of contact within the new registry's vicinity. Foreign lenders and non-banking mortgagees (which have no branches in the Evry area) must therefore appoint a third-party provider (eg, a notary or bailiff) to accept such election of domicile on their behalf.
