The aviation sector in Cyprus
The competent authority on aviation matters in the Republic of Cyprus is the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA). The DCA holds an Aircraft Register where all registrations, transfers & deletions of the aircrafts as well as their rights and any modification are recorded.
The Republic of Cyprus and consequently the DCA has based its aviation regulations and directives in accordance with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). After becoming a member state of the EU in 2014, Cyprus was obligated to implement all regulations and directives issued by EASA in an effort to unify and increase the safety standards in the civil aviation industry.
