Welcome to the website of the Bermuda Department of Civil Aviation (BDCA). Here you will find information about the business of the Department, the rules by which we regulate civil aviation in Bermuda and BDCA personnel who carry out this regulation.
Bermuda is an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, and the BDCA is subject to safety oversight surveillance by the Air Safety Support International (ASSI), a subsidiary of the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom who ensures compliance with international aviation safety standards. On the website you can access the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order and other documents that provide information and guidance about the rules that apply to conducting aviation activities that come under the purview of the BDCA.
You will also find policies, procedures, instructions and all related forms to enable you to apply for aircraft registration, personnel licenses, certificates, validations and approvals necessary for you to conduct your aviation activities.
If you have any queries about how to proceed with an application or enquiry, please consult the Organizational Chart that shows BDCA personnel, together with their duties and responsibilities. One of our personnel will be happy to help you with your enquiry.
If your enquiry concerns the particular advantages of registering aircraft in Bermuda, we are able to provide you with appropriate information and put you in contact with organizations in Bermuda that provide specialist information.
We hope you find the website interesting and informative, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
Thomas Dunstan, Director of Civil Aviation
