Brussels Aviation School is a flying school located in Brussels and Charleroi (Belgium). We have been continuously offering pilot training courses in both English and French for 14 years. Ground courses take place in the centre of Brussels (and by videoconference), and you will be developing your flight skills from the international airport of Brussels South Charleroi. The two runways 24/06 are open every day, all year long, from 6:30 to 22:00.

Our Flight School gives you the opportunity to obtain the European Private Pilot Licence (PPL(A)) and fly anywhere in the world, whether it be for private or professional trips. We also provide Night Rating courses, as well as advantageous Time Building packages on our two Piper Warrior PA28 Glass Cockpit aircraft.

Whether flying for leisure or starting an airline pilot career, we have customised training solutions for you. We also organise flying trips for both student-pilots and qualified pilots (either private or commercial) in many different countries in Europe and elsewhere. Last but not least we organise maiden flights and occasional flight lessons for a special gift or occasion (birthday, etc.).

We also provide training for the Night Rating as well as Instrument Flight Training. We are currently awaiting approval by the Belgian authorities to provide training for the Basic Instrument Rating (BIR).

Our flight school is an Approved Training Organisation (BE/ATO-306) and provides ground and flight training to PPL student-pilots as well as continuous training to qualified pilots.

PPL Theoretical Courses: our next session of private pilot license ground courses (live lectures by videoconference) start on Tuesday 13 September 2022. You can start your flight training in the meantime or later on if you prefer. Please contact us if you wish to enroll or for any information regarding our courses.

Our ground courses for the European Private Pilot License on airplanes take place every Tuesday evening from 7 pm to 9:30 pm. They are given in English via video conferencing (live lectures).

We also provide private lessons on request, and you may opt for a mix of classroom courses and private lessons.

Flight training takes place from the international airport of Charleroi (EBCI), every day, all year long. You can start flying before studying the theory, or vice-versa.

Flying trips and introductory flights

We are not only an airplane flight school. We organise all kinds of activities linked to aviation, such as first flight lessons. Come and join us to experience a first flight from the left seat of an aircraft. You can hold the controls of an airplane for 1 complete hour of real flight, under the supervision of a commercial pilot and flight instructor! We can also prepare a gift voucher if this is for one of your friends/relatives.

Brussels Aviation School also organises various flying journeys all year long departing from Brussels South Charleroi airport (Belgium). These flying tours are open to both student-pilots and qualified private (or professional) pilots. We have explored many destinations in Europe and Africa. Come and fly with us around the world to share our experience of international flying.
