Notifying an accident or serious incident


The pilot, owner or aerodrome supervisor is required to report any accident or serious incident immediately and by telephone to the AAIU(Be) via: 

  • Tel: +32 (0)2 277 44 33 
  • Cell phone: +32 (0)476 76 18 65 

This way an investigator can come to the scene if he considers it necessary. 

If you are in doubt about the seriousness, we ask you to inform us anyway. More info on what constitutes an accident or serious incident can be found here

Location of the accident or incident 

Except in cases of urgent necessity, it is prohibited to move an aircraft that was involved in a serious incident or accident. It is also prohibited to remove items or parts without permission from AAIU(Be) investigators. 

Accident at an airport? 

If the accident or incident occurs at an airport, or in its vicinity, an airfield supervisor or his deputy must complete the Accid-01 form. This must be sent within 24 hours to the AAIU(Be).
