Open House & BBQ 2016

The Sabena Aeroclub would like to welcome you again to our Open House Day at the Grimbergen Airfield.

Between 10h00 and 18h00 we offer you the possibility to meet our members and provide answers to your questions about flying and becoming a pilot. You get an opportunity to fly in our aircraft both in the pilot or passenger seat, participate in events with prizes (win a flight in a Piper Cub!), view Belgian's Flight Simulator Club in action, enjoy a static display and much more. Special tours to visit the hangars (remarkable protected monument) are organised. Goodies can be found to take home.

Info sessions are organised all day long, in Dutch, French and English.

In the evening there is a BBQ for club members and their friends/family. You can registrer using the following link:

We look forward to your visit and to share our passion!

PPL theory course 2016-2017

As from today it is possible to enrol in the English PPL(A) theory course of 2016-2017.

This year, the course starts on September 24th at 1pm.        Click here to enrol!    

The course is given on the airfield of Grimbergen (Vliegveld Grimbergen), only 15 kilometers away from Brussels, and is oriented towards the international community and expatriates living in Belgium. Of course, Dutch or French speaking candidates can also participate in the English course, but they may as well choose to enrol in the Dutch or French course. Our theory course is modular which means the student can "drop in" any time a new subject starts (so it is possible to start the course at every moment in the year).

While the main purpose is theoretical training in order to obtain the Private Pilot License, courses are open to anyone who would like to know more about flying or for any pilot who wishes to refresh his/her knowledge.

The English course is given by a team of highly motivated ground instructors on Saturday afternoons between 1:30pm and 5pm, from September until June. Its total duration is 105 hours. Together with the instructor, students can mutually agree to change dates/times subject to their availability. The PPL(A) theory course costs € 550 and includes books.
