About Special Operations

Welcome to the home of IVAO Belux Region Special Operations department !

Special operations can be defined as all ATC and flight operations that do not fall under commercial or general aviation. This can be, for example, military flights, police missions, search and rescue, fire fighting,…

For obvious reasons, SpecOps are subject to stricter rules than traditional flight or ATC operations. We recommend you to read carefully the rules and procedures on this website in order to avoid any problem and sanction.

For any question, feel free to contact the SpecOps department.

Enjoy !
