Some amateur-built or historical aircraft registered with the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) member states are no longer required to obtain a permit to fly over Belgian territory for up to 30 calendar days a year.

On 01/04/2022, the Belgian government has introduced a tax of 10€ per passenger on all flights departing from a Belgian airfield for distances of less than 500km, and 2€/passenger for longer distances. This tax is called the "Passenger Embarkation Tax", or TILEA for short.
We will explain you the details upon your arrival and help you with all formalities, if necessary, but please be advised that:

  • Local flights (departure and arrival on the same aerodrome) are exempt from the tax
  • Flight crew are not considered passengers. Flight crew include anyone assigned a duty relating to piloting the aircraft, flight safety, passenger care, accompaniment of freight, and all other persons transported for the sole purpose of performing, during the flight, a task as flight crew.
