The Special Activities Coordination Cell (SPACC) coordinates all flights that have a specific character and require special handling by ATC, as well as all activities, airborne and ground-based, that can have an impact on regular air traffic in controlled airspace.
Approval for special flights needs to be obtained directly from SPACC. These special flights include calibration flights, test flights, check flights, aerial surveys, radio/TV relay flights, pleasure flights, etc.
A request, using one of the forms below, shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 working days before the planned execution of the flight.
However, flights entering or crossing EBR01 or flights below the legal minimum flight altitude (SERA.5005) require approval from the BCAA. The form for this request shall be sent to the BCAA: email@example.com. More information on these exemptions can be obtained from the BCAA website.
The following activities also require approval from the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA).
