Civil Aircraft Registrations

In the British colonial era civil aircraft based in Kenya used the registration sequence VP-KAA to VP-KZZ, 1929-1963. The sequence G-KAAA to G-KZZZ had been allocated 1919 to 1929, but was not used. Upon independence the sequence 5Y-xxx was adopted.

All-time Kenya – civil aircraft register (VP-Kaa 5Y-aaa).
