Returns relating to births and deaths by owners of aircraft

4.—(1) The owner of an aircraft registered in Great Britain and Northern Ireland shall, as soon as practicable but not later than six months after the occurrence in any part of the world of a birth or death in the aircraft, or of a death outside the United Kingdom of a traveller on the aircraft who is killed on the journey in consequence of an accident, transmit to the Minister a return of such birth or death in the form, in accordance with the instructions, and containing the particulars prescribed in Appendix A to these Regulations (in the case of a birth) or Appendix B to these Regulations (in the case of a death):

Provided that if such particulars are not known to the owner of the aircraft, he shall transmit as aforesaid so many of such particulars as he is reasonably able to ascertain having regard to the circumstances of the birth or death.

(2) To facilitate the rendering of returns in accordance with this Regulation the person in command of an aircraft registered in Great Britain and Northern Ireland shall forthwith on the occurrence in any part of the world of a birth or death in the aircraft, or of the death outside the United Kingdom of a traveller in the aircraft who is killed on the journey in consequence of an accident, record in the journey log book, or other appropriate documents relating to that aircraft, the particulars of the birth or death mentioned in paragraph (1) of this Regulation and shall make such record available to the owner as soon as practicable:

Provided that if all such particulars are not known to the person in command of an aircraft and cannot be readily ascertained by him he shall record and make available as aforesaid so many of such particulars as are readily ascertainable.

(3) Where any aircraft has been bona fide demised, let, or hired out for a period exceeding fourteen days to any other person by the owner thereof, and no pilot, commander, navigator, or operative member of the crew of the aircraft is in the employment of the owner, the provisions of this Regulation shall have effect as though for references to the owner there were substituted references to the person to whom the aircraft has been so demised, let, or hired out.
