Belgian Air Force Expo

With this exhibition, the Ministry of Defense wants to show the visitor how a modern Air Force
can protect the peace and security of our country and its inhabitants. Our
The Air Force is active both in Belgium and worldwide for your safety. In Belgium
a state-of-the-art radar center monitors the airspace around the clock. We keep
fighter aircraft ready to intervene if necessary when that airspace is violated
threatens to become. We save lives with our Search-and-Rescue helicopters.
Our transport aircraft support the deployment of our troops worldwide
foreign assignments or in the event of disasters. Our fighter planes and helicopters are ready
to intervene where necessary at the request of the government.

To carry out our tasks, the Air Component is looking for well-trained and qualified personnel
personnel to operate state-of-the-art aircraft, helicopters, drones and a host of others
maintain and operate weapon systems. Who of a career in the military
aviation dreams, find the information he or she is looking for here. In addition, the
visitors actually take a seat in one of the helicopters or in an F-16.
