The IVAO Belux Aviation Day will also be the fine opportunity to learn many things at our various workshops.

Join the classroom and follow some short training modules (between 30 and 60 minutes each) given by an experienced instructor.



  • 10:00 - 10:30 | Phraseology, good practices by David Flement, XB-DIR

    Using an appropriate and efficient phraseology is very important as it maximises air safety, reduces the risk of errors and misunderstandings, and gives more free space for other pilots in an already busy environment. In this workshop, we'll remind you some very important facts about radiotelephony.

  • 11:00 - 12:00 | Initiation to VFR flying by Jonatan Geeurickx, XB-ADIR

    Flying visually is definitely an amazing experience. But it requires slightly different procedures. This workshop will make you learn how to prepare a VFR flight, what are the requirements and regulations, and how to perform it properly and safely.

  • 13:00 - 13:30 | Altimetry by Eric Tavares, XB-SOA1

    Are you often confusing altitude, elevation, height, flight level, QNH, transition level and transition altitude? In this short module we will explain what each notion is about and remind you about some very important things considering altitude and height.

  • 13:45 - 14:15 | Accurate flight plan filing by Roan Wera, XB-EAC

    It is quite common to see flight plans on IVAO that would not be accepted in real life. Wrong equipment, inaccurate route, lack of mandatory information... In this short module, we will see together what the ICAO flight plan is about and how to fill it properly.

  • 14:45 - 15:45 | Non-precision approaches by Eric Tavares, XB-SOA1

    Most pilots fly ILS approaches relying on their FMC and without always understanding how it actually works. But when a pilot has to expect a VOR/DME, a RNAV or a circling approach, things often become very stressful. Come and learn what those special approaches are about, how to understand the chart and how to fly it accurately.

  • 16:15 - 16:45 | Introduction to vectoring and traffic sequencing by Jonatan Geeurickx, XB-ADIR

    Are you sometimes opening an APP position? If so, it is important to know how to vector aircraft. A lot of things have to be taken into account: type of aircraft, altitude, speed, other aircraft, approach path... We'll try to give you some useful tips in order to ensure a proper and safe vectoring while efficiently managing the sequences.

  • 17:00 - 17:30 | METAR & TAF understanding by David Flement, XB-DIR

    You probably can easily read the wind and the QNH in a METAR. But can you understand a complicated METAR during bad weather conditions? Can you correctly decode a TAF in order to estimate the exact weather at a precise time? At this workshop, you will learn much about that.

  • 17:45 - 18:30 | Charts reading by Jonatan Geeurickx, XB-ADIR

    Learn how to correctly read the most common charts, including Jeppesen and AIP instrument approach charts, SID/STAR charts and visual approach charts.



IVAO stands for "International Virtual Aviation Organisation". We offer a dedicated, independant, free of charge service to enthusiasts and individuals enjoying and participating in the worldwide flight simulation community.
