Saturday March 08, 2014 the airports of Deurne (Antwerp), Kortrijk-Wevelgem, Ostend and Brussels opened their doors to the public.

These various "open doors" were organized in collaboration with the various Flanders flying clubs, the aeronautical industries of the northern country and the Air Force. This project was set up under the aegis of the Ministry of the Flemish region and the success of this day was quite considerable, allowing the individual to discover another side of aviation and possibly take the youngsters towards an aeronautical career.

Due to this success, why not consider to renew this experience in 2015... and why not at a national level including the airports of Brussels South - Charleroi and Liège - Bierset. Please do find some pictures of Deurne and Wevelegem
