Important instructions

To be able to organise this event, it is necessary that things run smoothly and everybody adheres to following:

  1. All aircraft must be insured in compliance with the European regulation n° 785-2004
  2. No aerobatics are allowed within a radius of 3.0 NM from the airfield and below 2.000 ft GRND
  3. No overflying of any public
  4. Except for the demo, parachuting is not allowed during the days of the Fly In
  5. Local flights must be declared beforehand and will only be granted when the traffic volume allows
  6. Radio contact which Schaffen Flight Information Service is compulsory. Except for the permission to enter the TRA, which is of a binding nature, Schaffen radio provides information service only. The permission to enter the TRA does not include traffic separation, in any way.
  7. A fly-by may only be done according to the SERA rules and in coordination with Schaffen Radio. The pilot in command bears the full responsibility for the lookout, the separation with other aircraft, and the overall safety of all manoeuvres. If a fly-by is performed it may only be done in the direction of the traffic flow.
  8. All formation flights have to comply with the Belgian regulations, i.e.:
    • allowed only with prior briefing of all concerned pilots
    • not allowed with paying passengers
    • formation takeoffs and landing are not allowed.

Caution: street lights (8m high) are located 150m before the threshold of RWY 24.

Before landing and take-off at the EBDT airfield, it is mandatory to read the this pilot briefing, and to register that you have read and understood this briefing via this link

Due to the volume of traffic at the fly in, it is not always workable to change the runway every time the wind direction changes. On the other hand, as a pilot you are responsible for the performance and safe operation of your aircraft. If you consider your aircraft performance marginal for the given weather conditions and runway in use, please do not take off, but contact the flight info service or the responsible (0473/51.52.70) so we can work on a solution. Your safety is our concern!!!

If the weather is nice, we count on many aeroplanes visiting us. This causes heavy workload for the FIS, or even frequency saturation on peak moments. For this reason, we ask you to use the ATIS as much as possible. It will give you information about the weather, the runway in use and other relevant items. Its frequency is 118.930.

It is the responsibility of both you and us to keep the airfield flight register up to date. Because of the many flights done during the fly-in, it is almost impossible for us to keep the register. Therefore, we ask your co-operation: could you please mark your arrival, departure and any local flight in the register?

During the event, the following number will be active from 16/08/2024 at 2 p.m.: 0032-13/69.01.03
