    Your personal invitation to Experimental Days 2022

    Hello,

    The wait will soon be over for Experimental Days 2022! This is your last chance to register for a fantastic aviation weekend at Sanicole airfield (EBLE) on 1 - 2 - 3 July 2022! Everyone interested in aviation, from aircraft owner to spotter, from Cessna to Piper or RV is welcome to join!

    Already 65 aircraft from all over Europe have registered. There are still a limited number of slots available. The preliminary long-term forecast promises dry and sunny weather with temperatures in the mid-twenties. We expect that those remaining landing slots will be filled in fast!

    Registration is open until Wednesday 29th of June 2022 at 6 PM CET. Register now if you plan to join. You can always cancel your reservation with the same link until that same date.

    More information is available on our website. You can register with this PERSONAL invitation link:

    What can you expect:

    • An international gathering of like minded enthusiasts from ALL over Europe
    • Belgian hospitality and professional catering with Belgian Fries on Friday and the legendary luxury BBQ buffet on Saturday
    • Visit the local tourist hotspots with one of the free to use bicycles
    • Belgian beers night on Friday and Saturday
    • A visit to the local distillery De Korhaan (limited availability). A perfect activity for your travel partner.
    • A free high quality picture of your aircraft while landing created by experienced spotters and photographers
    • New for this year is our award ceremony in 5 categories: best vintage, best homebuilt, longest distance travelled, 'crazy bird' for most exceptional flight/aircraft/pilot or dedication and finally 'unlucky bird'.
    • You can camp next to the aircraft or book a hotel in the vicinity of the airfield. We offer complementary shuttle service to the towns of Leopoldsburg, Hechtel-Eksel, Peer, Lommel, Balen, Beringen and Heusden-Zolder.
    • Important: due to a change in the policy of the Belgian military we are unable to offer 'Milton' also known as the military barracks as one of the sleeping options. We also have no plans for a collective permit because most of our visitors are free to overfly the Belgian territory.
    • ...

    If you are booking an hotel kindly add the name in the comments of your reservation so we can plan the shuttle service accordingly. In case you have any difficulties accessing the reservation page, you may always contact us by replying to this message.

    We hope to see you at Sanicole airfield on 1 - 2 - 3 July 2022 for Experimental Days 2022!

    Best Regards,

    Wim Van Malcot

    The "Third Tuesday" gatherings are organised independently of ILAS but are attended overwhelmingly by ILAS members. interested particularly in homebuilding aircraft or restoring old aircraft.  For this reason, ILAS lists and promotes the events to its members.

    The events are run as an 'open house'  on the third Tuesday of each month.  They are very informal and, where there is a formal programme, it tends to focus on some aspect of  building/restoring/maintaining an aircraft rather than flying.

    The initiator and organiser of the Third Tuesday events is Terry Coughlan and he can be contacted by email on terry@watermarkeng.ie
