Special Activities Coordination Cell

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.

Flights entering or crossing EBR01 or operating below the legal minimum flight altitude (SERA.5005) require approval from the BCAA. The form for this request shall be downloaded below and sent to the BCAA: bcaa.airports@mobilit.fgov.be. BCAA will coordinate with SPACC, when necessary. More information on these exemptions can be obtained from the BCAA website.

Also the following activities shall be requested to the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA), not via SPACC.

  • Ground-based activities, such as the release of toy balloons, fireworks display, sky tracers, etc., (BCAA webpage only available in French or Dutch)
  • Flights with model aircraft (BCAA webpage only available in French or Dutch)
  • Flights with RPAS (droneguide.be or droneguide app for iPhone or Android, and BCAA webpage only available in French or Dutch)
  • Parachuting activities (BCAA webpage only available in French or Dutch)
  • Temporary heliports for pleasure flights (BCAA webpage only available in French or Dutch)

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.

Your request shall be submitted to SPACC at least 5 working days before the planned execution of the flight. The buttons below will guide you to the online request forms.

After submission you will receive an email with your request and a unique reference number. SPACC will coordinate your activity with the ATC units involved and will send you its coordination document with instructions to be adhered to when executing your flight.
