Aviation & Maritime
The Bahamas is a Member State of the International Civil Aviation Organization Conventions (ICAO) and adheres to the safety standards and recommended practices of the ICAO which is policed by the Department of Civil Aviation.
GSO works closely with Inspectors at the Department of Civil Aviation on a wide range of aircraft approvals including but not limited to, aircraft and pilot licensing and registration, acquisition and financing, leases, and preparation of air craft security documents. GSO also regularly assist with corporate formation to hold title to an air craft as Bahamian registered air craft must be owned by either a Bahamian citizen, a Permanent Resident of The Bahamas or held in the name of a Bahamian company incorporated under the Companies Act.
GSO works closely with the Bahamas Maritime Authority offices in London, England and The Bahamas, as well as with large shipping firms in multiple jurisdictions including Europe and Asia on numerous transactions including but not limited to:
• Ship licensing and registration
