Do someone knows a way how to arrange an American(N) registration of aircraft located in Europe? I mean there should be an agency that you can entrust with carrying out an American registration of an aircraft that is in Europe. I am looking for this office.

  • $\begingroup$ @RonBeyer, surprisingly N55XZ appears to be registered by Austrian company, not a US one. The plane is based in Czechia and I doubt it ever operates outside Europe. $\endgroup$ – Jan Hudec Feb 12 '17 at 16:55
  • $\begingroup$ @JanHudec Looking at some records for that aircraft, it seems that the N number was registered originally to an address in Houston, TX. Maybe that is how they did it... $\endgroup$ – Ron Beyer Feb 12 '17 at 21:51
  • $\begingroup$ @RonBeyer, that would mean when you buy an airplane that has valid N registration, you can keep it even if you don't otherwise satisfy the conditions... $\endgroup$ – Jan Hudec Feb 13 '17 at 9:36

The FAA handles all US aircraft registration: FAA Aircraft Registration Note that there are ownership requirements related to US citizenship etc. See FAR 47.3
