Flying USA-registered Airplanes in and near Belgium
If 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.
