      You will need the Belgian permit which is easily obtained but renewable annually. Around EUR 90 I think. I have the contact details if you would like them.

        Never ask the locals about flying a foreign microlight in their country. It is like consulting the BMAA website or asking the average British pilot for information on what is required to fly a Belgian or French ulm in the UK. Even EMF's 'MLA flying in Europe' is a dog's breakfast.

        Laurie,

        I can recommend Maillen, Liernu, Zuienkerke and Bullingen.

          There is info on the BMAA web site - search FLYING ABROAD.

            The only reliable info on the BMAA website is on flying to Ireland. The Fly to France and ELT in France info is obsolete and most of the links in MLA flying in Europe either don't work or are to out of date email addresses.

            Here is a link to the Belgian overflight application. goo.gl/n5jT3d

                Has the new medical arrangement been accepted by the Belgians??

                  The Belgians grant a permit to the aircraft, not the pilot, so don't expect them the "accept" the new medical declaration. Bear in mind that French ULM pilots carry no evidence of medical fitness at all.

                    I believe that the old self certify medical was accepted by all(?) EU countries for microlights, but only some for Annex II GA.
                    The new arrangement will have to be ratified by each country, and may not (more than likely) be as acceptable.
                    I wonder if the BMAA (in particular), and the LAA are looking into this.

                      There were no agreements to accept the previous self declaration, but those countries that did not require prior permission for microlights accepted it by default.

                      France is the only country which does not require microlight pilots to have a medical certificate. Spain used to require a Class 2, but now accepts a LAPL.

                      It is difficult to see how the BMAA or LAA could do anything, except ask their counterparts in EU what the local requirements are. Why would any NAA agree lower medical standards for UK pilots than for their own?

                      In my view, the new certificate will not restrict flying abroad any more than the old certificate did, but then I have a LAPL. :-)
