Fouga Magister

We have recently established a partnership with the Antwerp-based Stampe & Vertongen (S&V) museum to support them and keep their vintage aircraft in the air. One of these iconic aircraft is the ex-Belgian Air Force Fouga Magister CM.170 "MT-5".

Impressive!

Take a flight

into history

The Fouga Magister played a big role in Belgium's aviation history. Its distinguishable V-tail and red color make this ex-Belgian Air Force trainer recognizable and unique in every sight.

This French twin-engine jet trainer joined the Belgian Air Force in 1960 as predecessor of the Alpha Jet. Our Fouga "MT-5" was part of the famous display team 'Red Devils', of which it is now the only one retaining its original color scheme. After retirement from the Air Force, "MT-5" was shipped to Israel and later flew in the USA for a private owner.

In 2014, "MT-5" arrived back at its new home base in Antwerp. The aircraft received major restoration and could finally return to the Belgian skies in 2017, where it belongs.

The Ultimate Experience

Schedule

After your booking, we look at possible dates to perform your flight. Weather permitting, you will be welcomed at Antwerp airport by your experienced pilot. He will then give you a briefing about the flight, safety and route.

If you have any questions about the flight, don't hesitate to ask him! Our pilots love talking about their aircraft.

After the briefing, you will be strapped in the rear seat of the Fouga, from which you will enjoy some spectacular views over the city of Antwerp and its surroundings. After a flight of about 20 minutes (30 minutes engine time), you will safely return to the airport again.

Our pilot Bernard Van Milders, an FAA flight instructor, will be more than happy to offer you a one-time introductory flight on the iconic Fouga Magister of 30 minutes (at least 20 min guaranteed airborne time).

The price for a Fouga Flight is currently â‚¬2400. Contact us for more information!
