Flying USA-registered Airplanes in and near Belgium

N496ACIf you have an FAA license, you can find GA airplanes for rent throughout the world in which you can fly legally. But sometimes, the search is hard. You can also expect to pay a little more than local registered airplanes for rent. Usually, they are somewhat better equipped (typically IFR certified) as many local pilots have an FAA issued Instrument Rating as this process is most cost and time effective.

Some international pilots have mailed me with questions on Belgium based N-reg airplanes, others asked for specific help in dealing with IFR flight in Europe. I am always happy to help out … it’s free!.

Below you find the N-registered airplanes that I detected in my neighbourhood so far, and that are advertised for rent. Many others are for private use only. If you know more of those N-regs, please let me know.

By the way, if you look for an FAA accredited flight instructor in the west of Belgium or north of France, check out Jetperformance.

    I have been looking at your website earlier, but didn’t need the information by then. That might change.

    It might be of interest to add 2 other options, both at EHRD Rotterdam :
    1/ N122MX SR20G6
    Aircraft managed by my friend David de Vries (CSIP). Aircraft used for instruction but also available for rent. Full options.

    2/ N8289A P28A Warrior II
    IFR with GNS430W. Well maintained.

    Since I work in Brussels, I am looking for options in Brussels-Antwerp area.
    Aircraft needs to be IFR equipped, preferably GNS430W or better.

    If you have additional advise……highly appreciated
    Kind Regards, Eugene
