As a pilot, do you want to take part in a friendly challenge by pilots for pilots?

If you share our passion of flying as ground spectator, do you want to see a lot of planes on Saturday 9th of September?

Then, feel free too join us at the Spa (EBSP) and Verviers/Theux (EBTX) airfields for a friendly competition among crews: cross-country flight over specific spots (+/- 1 hour), precision landing & parking, knowledge quizz, ... All of this in a relax atmosphere and in a safe and serious environment.

Around 18:30, there is the result publication, followed by a free drink for the non-pilot and a dinner on the airfield (open to everyone but every participant will have to pay for dinner).

Free but mandatory registration and the landing feeds are waived in Spa and Theux for all participating crews.

French and English will be used on that day.

Départ de Spa le samedi 6 mai sous un soleil radieux (avec un fort vent de travers) avec le OO-ALE, OO-FMX, OO-SPP et notre OO-SPQ direction le Sud et Verdun (LFGW), un aérodrome bien sympa avec un bon petit restaurant donnant directement sur le taxiway: La Failotte.

Nous savions que la météo était limite à Verdun (mais bonne visibilité malgré les averses de pluie) donc séjour écourté pour revenir à Spa avec le beau soleil.

Et quelle belle arrivée: la patrouille acrobatique des Forces Aériennes faisait un arrêt à Spa (après leur show à Francorchamps) :-) et cerise sur le gâteau, ils ont fait un low-pass avant de nous quitter!

Encore un superbe exemple de solidarité au sein de la famille aéronautique! Ce 6 juin 2016.

Yet another example of airmen friendship at its best! 6th of June 2016.

A post from Sonaca (the Belgian airspace engineering company) (see also their Facebook post:
Meeting at Spa-EBSP on Monday with Aerokurier for a Pilot Report. Due to heavy thunderstorm, we stayed overnight. Thank you to Royal Aéro Para Club de Spa and Soutien à l'aérodrome de Spa-EBSP for a place in the hangar !

Cela montre non seulement que la solidarité existe (surtout pour un si bel avion!) mais que les aéroports régionaux font partie intégrante du tissus industriel (Sonaca mais aussi école de pilote) aéronautique de notre région et de notre pays.

Our flight school and club turns 70 this year!
Let's celebrate this with a Air Spa Rallye during the day and a party on the airfield in the evening.
So, pencil the Saturday 3rd of September 2016 in your agenda!
