The licensing counter is currently closed.

Following the recommendations of the National Security Council and of the FPS Public Health to slow down the propagation of the coronavirus, it will not be possible anymore from 14th March 2020 to bring or retrieve documents at our desk.

This measure is to minimise the contacts and will stay in place till further advice.

The call center for pilot licenses is contactable every afternoon from 13:30 to 15:00.
The call center for maintenance personnel licenses is contactable every afternoon from 13:30 to 15:00.

Encountering heavy workload, it is not possible for us to give you an exact status of your file. We cannot answer questions like:

  • What is the status of my file?
  • Did you receive my documents?
  • Has my licence has been sent?

If you have questions apart from the status of your file, please refer to hereunder section “ If you have questions “.


We currently have some delay to proceed the licensing demands. It takes about 50 working days for the licences. We will make every effort to process pending requests as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Payment of the Fees

Make the payment only after receiving the invitation to pay. Indeed, payments in advance do not guarantee an expedited processing of your file, quite the contrary.
For a fast processing of your file, make payment on time upon receipt of the invoice or the invitation to pay.
Pay each invitation to pay separately:

  • with the exact amount requested;
  • with good structured communication;
  • on the correct account number, as indicated on the invoice.

Checks and cash payments are not accepted.
