PPL theory course 2017-2018

As from today it is possible to enrol in our English PPL(A) theory course of 2017-2018.

This year, the course starts on September 30th at 1:30 pm.        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.

GNS430 Training

The Sabena Aeroclub offers its pilots a GPS training on the Garmin GNS430, similar to the one in the DA20. The course will take place on March 25 starting at 20h in the clubhouse.

The course objectives are:

- A basic comprehension of the GNSS.
- Understanding the pagination of the unit.
- Defining a user waypoint.
- Editing a flight plan.
- Achieving a fast and comfortable manipulation at a glance to avoid time spent head down in the cockpit.

The course will not cover:
- any kind of procedure.
- vertical navigation.

Caveat: this training is not a lecture, but a hands-on training, and it will be profitable only if you can bring your laptop with this GNS430W trainer installed. Minor differences with regard to our GNS430, but the GNS430 (without the W suffix) trainer is for WindowsXP only. If you still have WindowsXP (in standalone it still works well for what is following), please download this GNS430 trainer.

Registration on the club website.

New website!

The Sabena Aeroclub has a new website!

After a long period of development and optimalisation our new website is online since June 19, 2016. Behind the scenes we worked hard on a fresh and accessible design. The website is fully responsive to provide optimal viewing experience on tablets and mobiles. There is as well a powerful search engine, brand new pilots section and the former flash info is back as online blog. We hope to inform you better with this new website. Thanks to all members who helped with suggestions, submissions of pictures, information and translations.

In the future, we will continue to develop and expand this website, for example adding an online learning platform. So visit our website regularly to stay informed!
