BAPA.BE : In search of other pictures of Austria OO-ZTL in "Tiger" colours

Hello,

At the bapa workshop (www.bapa.be) , we are currently working hard to prepare the Austria OO-ZTL for display.
Gliding Bob already provided us some pictures of the "Tigge" (Tiger pronounced the walloon way).
If you have more picture of this glider, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This magnificent machine was given Bapa late October by his owner. This delightfull and rare glider is in very good condition but needed a new painting to be put on display. The only missing part is the instrument panel (if ever you have one or information to build a new one, we are also interested).


You can visit us at www.bapa.be

Many thanks in advance

Brussels Airlines operates 2.486 additional flights this summer season

    Brussels Airlines offers 11 new destinations this summer season, which, in aviation, starts on 30 March and runs until end of October. In total the airline will expand its offer with 2.486 extra scheduled flights.
Brussels Airlines prepares itself for a busy summer season. Its fleet will be expanded and additional cabin crew members have been recruited and trained over the past few weeks to realize the summer season expansion plans. Compared to last year Brussels Airlines will operate 2,486 additional flights this summer, good for a total of 400,000 additional seats.
European network
11 new destinations make their debut in this year’s summer schedule: Alicante, Athens, Bari, Bastia, Cagliari, Figari, Krakow, Malta, Montpellier, Seville and Warsaw. Several existing routes will have additional flight frequencies, including Catania, Faro, Florence, Lisbon, Madrid, Malaga, Marseille, Palermo, Marrakech and Stockholm Bromma. Like last year, Brussels Airlines also reopens Porto as a summer route. The city bears this year’s title of “Europe’s Best Destination”.
The short- and medium haul network consists of a total of 58 destinations this summer and is further complemented by codeshare destinations operated by partner airlines.
“Next to our well-established offer for the business traveler, we wanted to also increase the attractiveness of our leisure network. With this network expansion, we offer more than ever an excellent range of holiday destinations”, says Frédéric Dechamps, Brussels Airlines Vice President Sales Benelux, Europe and America.
Long-haul network
This summer, the Brussels Airlines long-haul network is also further optimized with additional flight frequencies. An additional flight is scheduled to Luanda (Angola) and Bujumbura (Burundi). This brings the number of weekly flights to these destinations to three instead of two. An additional (fifth) weekly flight is scheduled to operate to Nairobi (Kenya). The intercontinental network includes a total of 2 destinations to the United States and 19 destinations to Africa.

Charter activity
Brussels Airlines also plans a lot of charter activity this summer. The airline will operate holiday flights to sunny Mediterranean destinations on behalf of Belgian and foreign tour operators. Their largest customers are Thomas Cook and Club Med. Brussels Airlines also offers holiday flights from French and Swiss airports. In total, 1044 holiday flights are planned for this summer season.

Noordzee Helikopters Vlaanderen (NHV) orders 6 more EC175 thelicopters


   
Noordzee Helikopters Vlaanderen koopt extra heli's bij Airbus

Het Oostendse bedrijf Noordzee Helikopters Vlaanderen (NHV) heeft zijn bestelling van EC175-toestellen bij Airbus Helicopters, het voormalige Eurocopter, uitgebreid tot zestien stuks. Dat hebben NHV en Airbus Helicopters bekendgemaakt tijdens een helikopterbeurs in Anaheim (Californië). De eerste heli's worden dit jaargeleverd.
   NHV had in 2012 al tien exemplaren besteld van de EC175, een tweemotorige helikopter uit de klasse van de zeventonners. "Wij - NHV en onze klanten - hebben, nadat we de prestaties van de EC175 ervaren hebben, er het volste vertrouwen in dat de helikopter de operationele noden van NVH zal kunnen vervullen", zegt NHV-topman Eric Van Hal in een persbericht. "Deze tweede EC175-aankoop bevestigt onze strategie, met name het werken met een jonge vloot met de meest moderne systemen."
    Er werd dinsdag geen bedrag genoemd, maar het totaalbedrag van het eerste contract van tien toestellen (helikopters, uitrusting en vervangstukken) benaderde de 150 miljoen euro.
NHV werd opgericht in 1997 en is voornamelijk actief in helikoptertransport, bijvoorbeeld voor de olie- en gassector, zeeloodsen, windmolenparken op zee, overheden en hospitalen.
   Airbus Helicopters is een onderdeel van de Airbus Group. Het is naar eigen zeggen de grootste helikopterbouwer wereldwijd en stelt meer dan 23.000 mensen tewerk. 

  Noordzee Helicopters Vlaanderen (NHV) porte sa commande de EC175 à seize exemplaires 

 La société “Noordzee Helicopters Vlaanderen” (NHV), basée sur l'aéroport d'Ostende, a annoncé mardi avoir porté à seize appareils sa commande de nouveaux hélicoptères EC175, un tout nouvel appareil de la classe des sept tonnes dont elle prendra livraison du premier exemplaire cette année, ce qui fera d'elle - et de loin - le premier opérateur civil de voilures tournantes en Belgique.
    NHV a commandé six EC175 supplémentaires lors de Heli-Expo 2014, le plus grand salon aéronautique réservé aux hélicoptères qui se tient de lundi à jeudi à Anaheim (Californie, ouest des Etats-Unis).
    La société ostendaise avait été l'un des clients de lancement de ce nouvel hélicoptère construit par Airbus Helicopters, une filiale d'Airbus Group et premier fabriquant mondial d'hélicoptères civils, en commandant dix exemplaires en 2012."Nous - NHV et nos clients - avons, après avoir expérimenté les performances de l'EC175, pleine confiance dans les capacités de l'hélicoptère à satisfaire les besoins opérationnels de NHV et dans la possibilité pour Airbus Helicopters de respecter ses engagements dans le programme", a affirmé le PDG de l'entreprise, Eric Van Hal, cité dans un communiqué du groupe européen.
   "Cette seconde acquisition d'EC175 poursuit notre stratégie (qui est) de posséder et d'opérer une flotte jeune dotée des systèmes les plus modernes, a-t-il ajouté. Aucun montant n'a été cité, ni par NHV, ni par Airbus Helicopters. Mais le montant global du premier contrat de dix appareils - hélicoptères, équipements associés et pièces de rechange - approchait les
150 millions d'euros.
   Les appareils seront équipés pour des missions qui comprennent des vols de transport pour le secteur pétrolier et gazier. Les applications futures incluront des missions de recherches et de sauvetage (SAR).
Créée en 1997, NHV est spécialisée dans le transport aérien par hélicoptère. La société dispose actuellement d'une flotte de 28 appareils - principalement construits par Airbus Helicopters - répartis dans neuf pays sur trois continents (Europe, Afrique et Amérique du sud). Elle opère notamment au profit d'entreprises pétrolières et gazières en Europe, tout en effectuant des missions de transport aérien médical d'urgence pour divers hôpitaux européens et assure le transport de lamaneurs (pilotes portuaires).

Video: "F16 MLU BELGIAN AIR FORCE DEMO - Pilot: Cmdt Michel "Mitch" Buelen (airshowvision)"




Airshowvision present one of the very best fast jet demos of the last few years, in the shape of the Belgian Air Force F16, flown brilliantly by Cmdt. Michel "Mitch" Buelen.

Unfortunately Mitch has now completed his 3 year stint as demo plot in this jet, but thnkfully we can still enjoy his demo on video.

One thing I have learned over the last few years by going to airshows is that the pilot is every bit as important as the plane in determining how great the demo is, and Mitch has blown all the other F16 pilots away, although there are many other extremely good F16 demos around too.

I am sure I speak for fast jet enthusiasts everywhere in wishing Mr. Buelen all the best in the rest of his flying career, as he passes the baton onto the next demo pilot.
