For registering the aircraft there is no weight restriction or age restriction. The person has to be a citizen of the U.S. The aircraft should not be registered under a nominee or an agent but a legal owner. In some of the exceptional situations, the owner might not be the legal title holder of the aircraft.
Who can qualify to register an aircraft? The U.S. government, an individual citizen of the U.S., a partnership amongst U.S. citizens etc. is able to register. Additionally, organizations under the influence of the U.S. law, the president of the organization is U.S. citizen or two third of board directors are U.S. citizen.
There is a typical structure to register an aircraft. The aircraft owner should meet the U.S. citizenship test and if does not qualify, he should use the non-citizen trust or NCT. Here the non-citizen party and a U.S. trustee both come under the NCT trust for registration and its qualification. There is no need for shareholders to be physically present at the location in the U.S. still; here the citizenship test is a must.
A registered owner should file 8050-1B Aircraft Registration Renewal Application every three years. Under certain circumstances, current registration might turn invalidated, like current owner loses citizenship, ownership change or the aircraft is registered under a foreign registry. For a standard airworthiness certification, there should be a valid FAA airplane registration.
