International Old-Timer Fly-Drive-In

We would like to inform you of the 38th FLY IN of old planes, organised at the Schaffen-Diest airfield (EBDT) August 11th up to and including 13th 2023.

This Fly In is also the 38th gathering, outside Italian borders, of planes like Falco, Picchio, Nibbio, SF260 designed by engineer Stelio Frati.

Amateur-built and certain historic aircraft registered in European - Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) member states no longer require- a permit to over fly Belgian territory for 30 days in a calendar year.

We hope to welcome, as in the previous years, umpteen planes from France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Great Britain, Germany, …

During the weekend, each team will enjoy following benefits :
- a lunch offered to each member of crew
- the possibility to stay overnight at the airfield (camping)
