Staff Changes


First of all let’s get started with the staff of the XB Region Division as a lot has changed in the past weeks.

Jessy Stas and ANONYMOUS have decided to leave their staff positions. We thank them for the work they did for the division. Denis Toussaint is now Director of the Division. Two new members have joined the team. Yannick van Styvendael joined us as Webmaster and is doing an outstanding job on our new website (more info further below in the NOTAM). The second new staff member is Jonatan Geeurickx who has just been appointed as Special Operations Coordinator. A position he already occupied a few years ago. We hope these changes are going to bring some new and fresh air to the division.


New website


Thanks to Yannick, our new Webmaster, the division is glad to present its new website which is full of new features. Within the next weeks, Yannick is going to keep working really hard to be able to provide us with some incredible tools/features. We will obviously keep you posted. In the meantime, check out our new website!


Brussels RFE - Debriefing


On the 26th of February, we organized the Brussels RFE 2017 which took place in Zaventem where Brussels Flight Simulators is having a really nice Boeing 737NG Simulator. This is the first event we organized together but it’s obviously not going to be the last one! We are currently working hard on our partnership and we will try to provide you with some great events/opportunities. Also, some pictures of the RFE are going to be posted on our website, check them out!




As some of you may have heard, Skywonder is having its first edition in Expo Kortrijk in the weekend from 25-26th March.

IVAO BeLux was able to get a stand in the Simulator Zone, we have a fly-in/out for people at home, and a warm welcome for all visitors at Kortrijk.  Don't forget that we will be changing to summertime in that weekend.  Hope to see you all in the air!

Also, we are going to organize some quizz/contest on our social medias to make you win some free tickets so make sure to check them regularly!


News from our ATC Department


Our ATC Operations department has worked on new tools for our ATCO’s. In fact, as we are currently still waiting for IVAC2 to get released. We are pleased to provide us with a new and updated sectorfile. This sector file will also be up to date in regard with the new RNAV (GNSS) Procedures Also, a new color scheme is now also available, as well as a new quickview for Brussels Control which regroups all the needed information for each airport in the FIR, in a single document.


New RNAV Procedures


Some airports in Belgium now have new RNAV (GNSS) Procedures. They are effective with AIRAC 1703. Be sure to check the changes!


If you have troubles understanding these new procedures you may contact our Training Department and they will be glad to help you out!


Special Operations restarting!


The "Belux Special Operations Group" (BeSOG) is welcoming new registrations !
If you are interested in any kind of special operations, you may apply for the BeSOG. Once your application gets approved, you will get a basic "ab-initio" training, mostly covering the procedures and rules applicable to special operations.
After that, you will choose one or several categories : tactical flight, air transport, light aviation and/or military ATC.
In each category, a specialized training will be provided. After the training, you will be appointed to a Squadron.
Everybody may apply to the BeSOG.
It is not mandatory to be part of it in order to fly special operations, but some operations are restricted to recognized SOG (see HQ Rules & regs).

Also, if you are interested in being part of the staff but don't know for which position to apply, you may still check out the vacancies and/or send a mail to


IVAO BeLux Support Team


IVAO is constantly running on the hard work of volunteers, as is our beloved division. These volunteers most of the time have a Staff title. Now with this staff title comes responsibility. But we also have some people helping us behind the scenes, they are called the "IVAO BeLux Support Team". They are of great value to our division and their input and ideas are greatly appreciated. One of the advantages of the support team is that you have no responsibility like a Staff member, you help where and how you can within your area of expertise, if you don’t have time drop us quick message, no need perform daily/weekly staff duties..
The Support Team is also a good place to start in case you would like to become Staff at one point but are afraid or unsure in the beginning. So it is ideal to get familiar with the workings of IVAO and our division.



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.
